It's been a whirlwind summer. On June 10th, I began rehearsals for StageWorks Fresno's MAMMA MIA! and we opened on July 12. This was my first show in my hometown in many years, and I was so excited to get started. We danced. And danced. And danced again. And held sustained notes while dancing. It was one of the best workouts EVER! And since it's summer in Fresno, I'm sure we all sweated off AT LEAST ten pounds from our non-stop ABBA dance-a-thon, and then going out and living life in sweaty triple-digits. Hahahahaha.
And then in the blink of an eye, it was all over. One weekend only. I am humbled, grateful, and totally blessed to have had this experience. I've wanted to do MAMMA MIA! for ages now (because who doesn't love ABBA?), and I'm so glad this was the summer it finally happened. I'm in awe of my fellow cast members, the band, the creative team, our crew, our volunteers, and our audience who came to support us. I won't ever forget it.
