Tessa is home from NYC.  Her plane got in at about 10:00 p.m. last night.  She is one tired girl.

Before leaving for NY she auditioned for the high school musical this year which is Hairspray.  We were so excited they were doing Hairspray.  We love that show and had seen it on Broadway.  She auditioned for the roles of Amber (the mean daughter) and Velma (the mean mother).

Call backs were the week she was in NY so we didn't think she had a chance at a lead role but she thought it would just be fun to be part of the show in the chorus or as a member of the council.

Last night at 12:30 a.m. the cast list was posted online and she went from one very tired girl to a very EXCITED girl when she saw that she has been given one of the lead roles - Amber!!  We are so excited and so proud of her!!!

 The show runs the first two weekends in March - shows Thursday - Saturday so mark your calendars!!  We'd love you all to come see it!
