Remember way back in February when Princess got engaged? Well, today was supposed to be her bridal shower, but when she realized she still had the day scheduled off and no plans, she decided we all needed a girls' night out.
So she looked around and discovered that the Hale Center Theater was doing a performance of Jane Eyre. She immediately bought 11 tickets and issued an invitation to all the girls in the family and one of her very best friends from our Girl Scout troop. Every one of them were thrilled to go except Fajita, so we left her home.
Jane Eyre has a soft spot in my heart. About 10 years ago, Drama Queen performed as Miss Scatcherd and in the ensemble out in Riverton. It was the first time I ever saw it on stage and I loved the music right from the beginning.
The Hale is a very small theater-in-the-round created out of a house, but they do a fantastic job! We were so enthralled by the performance that we hardly noticed we were seated in two groups on different sides of the stage.
Thank you, Princess! It was way more fun than a bridal shower and a lot less work.
