Decades Revue...fishnet and poodle skirts

Lilian is finally old enough to join CentreStage Theatre this year. Considering how much of a mini-Julianne she is, it seemed appropriate.

The studio put on a Decades Musical Revue recently with each class taking a different decade. Julianne was up first with the 1980's. Talk about the soundtrack to my teenage years...every single song they sang brought back memories. I am truly a child of the '80's. ( was all I could do to not sing along to Bon Jovi's "Livin' on a Prayer.")

A few weeks later, Lilian was up with the 1950's. Her class used a little play called "At the Bandstand" to incorporate all those oldies but goodies such as Shake Rattle and Roll, Rockin' Robin, Johnny Angel, etc.

Lilian played Maisy Skippy Paws, the sassy little cat of Darlene Worthington (an entitled little rich girl who wants to be the new dancer on Bandstand.) Their play reminded me of a cross between the TV show "American Dreams" and that '80's movie "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun."

I may be biased but Lilian was adorable. Every single line was a meow or purr and it was fun to hear her change those up by changing the tone in her voice...every meow sounded different. I was surprised to realize that she had a little duet (where rather than meows she sang sh-boom and other such nonsensical words.)

Next up for my CentreStage girls...first, a performing trip to Disneyland over spring break for Julianne. Then her class is putting on "Thoroughly Modern Millie" in which Julianne plays the part of Millie! After that, the whole studio is doing "The Wizard of Oz" which means Julianne and Lilian will be in the show together. Sort of. Different classes do different scenes. I'm looking forward to it.
