I volunteer ushered at the Badgett Playhouse (http://www.grandriversvariety.com/) last night. I simply had a super wonderful extremely fantastical time. Last night's show was Variety, Music, Memories & More. Just as the show's name describes, many different music styles were performed. My favorite was the fast paced, high energy glitterized Motown segment closely followed by the sparkly Disco montage, however, the well rehearsed stage performers paled in comparison to what I was hearing from the back row.
No, no it's not what you think. Yes, the theatre was dimly lit and yes, I did mention the back row but, from the back row I was gleefully serenaded by the children of one of the band member's. The two little boys, ages 5 and 7, knew practically every word to practically every song! My favorite miniature masterpiece was the older of the two brothers singing right along, word for word, with the very beautiful & extremely talented Sara Minihan as she belted out Tanya Tucker's "Delta Dawn". Simply priceless!
Children are beautiful and life is good!
