Joseph and Easy Street

My sisters and I saw Joseph & The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at a college this morning. It was performed by a Christian-kids-theater group. (They're doing The Music Man in the fall, and I'd REALLY love to be in it...)

Joseph was good - that is, I enjoyed it. The costumes were wild and funny, the singers were mostly very good. But I didn't like the musical very much. It's just too wacky for me, with pretty annoying characters and music. And was it ever colorful! Wow... But as I said, the singing was very good, and there was a lot of dancing.

The sons of Jacob had a random maid who came out and danced with one of them. So strange...

So after that, my sisters and I were kind of in a theaterish mood. A few nights ago we watched Annie (the newish one), and we always comment on the dancing in Easy Street. "Don't people notice them dancing like that!?" Stuff like that. Desirae (or it might have been my other sister) said, "We should do that sometime. Just dance down a street or sidewalk singing and dancing all weird like that," So today, we were walking from a restaurant to Kmart with my dad, and Desirae whispered in my and my sister's ears "Let's do Easy Street" now.

Sooo...

I did.

I took off my sweatshirt (don't ask why I was wearing it on such a day. It wasn't that hot in the restaurant) and started swinging it around. And I sang. And danced like Rooster. We were all kind of having a hard time breathing from so much laughter by the time we got to the store.

Wow, I really respect you for that. I'm too reserved to do anything crazy like pretend I'm in a musical.
