One thought on “Wrap”

  1. They had practiced the entire show of “Fiddler On The Roof” so many times that she was singing and moving in her sleep. It was such good fun being in a production with a diverse group of people. Marie enjoyed seeing the excitement on the children’s faces. She knew they would be hooked for life in wanting to perform and elicit reactions from an audience. The week prior to opening night they rehearsed every single night and were so psyched when the night before the opening the stagehands went all out and producedthe harmless smoke that rose from the ground in one of the acts. At the end of the last rehearsal when the director claimed, “It’s a wrap!” the cast laughed and hugged one another with joy. They were chomping at the bit for opening night.
