The high school kids performed the musical, Bye Bye Birdie last weekend.
Rosie was delightful in her irritation at Albert for his inability to commit, and so grudgingly she makes an inspired decision to have Conrad (Albert’s client) kiss a girl from the small town of Sweet Apple, Ohio:
In Sweet Apple, lucky Kim (who will get to kiss Conrad goodbye as he leaves for the Army) and the members of the Conrad Birdie fan club pledged their never ending devotion to Conrad Birdie with tremendous zeal.
I was impressed and proud of all the young actors, but seriously (and I heard it from other people, so it wasn’t just me being a stage mom, okay, so maybe I was, but that’s not important right now) Lucy. Stole. The. Show.
She got applause just for walking on and off the stage. (I was loving it.)
Although, every single time she was on stage, I couldn’t help but be reminded of the character of Adela (the overbearing, interfering Cuban grandmother) from the old TV show, “Que Pasa, USA?” who ironically always happens to steal the show just by her presence.
Coincidence? I think not. ;-)
