Update: Hakuna Matata
UPDATE, Wednesday night: As previously reported, The Lion King was maybe our BEST theater experience ever. And while others have had more experience, my audience member resume is not too shabby: I saw Yul Brynner in The King and I, Robert Goulet in South Pacific, and James Earl Jones as Othello, among other classics. If you POSSIBLY can, go to Lion King.
As for LG's concert, it was excellent, high energy, cute and loud. Third, fourth and fifth graders. Because we didn't think she'd be performing in the evening concert, I attended the in-school performance on Monday. And because we didn't know that she'd be performing tonight until last night, I was unable to get away from work early enough to attend tonight's show. However, Jif did. SO, both her Daddy and I got to see and hear her, her good grade in Chorus is secure, and we aren't complaining about a thing.
Oh, and one more thing: My GOSH, y'all are sweet, to take time to yippy! with us about our little fluke of fortune. Bloggers are good people :)
We went to the Lion King tonight, as planned. It was spectacular. I loved it so much. We were right on the aisle, so LG got up close and personal to the amazing critters as they paraded by. Last week I asked for your opinions on going to the Lion King, and having LG miss a "mandatory" school chorus performance. It was unanimous, take a bad grade in chorus, and go to the Lion King. I had informed LG's teacher that she would not be performing in the concert.
Well, guess what!? LG came home from school today with a note that her concert was postponed until tomorrow night, due to air-conditioning troubles at the school. So she didn't miss it after all! She gets to do both.
Hakuna matata. That's what I'm talking about : )
