The Pearce High School Theatre department put on Singin' in the Rain, and we made a trip to the matinee show. These kids were so excited for the show to start. We got there early, picked our seats and got ready to be entertained!
Beau and his shark hair! Lincoln has been to a few plays at Pearce, but this was Beau's first time.
We enjoyed the first act and were curious about how they would actually sing in the "rain"! When it was time for the big number, they really did sing in the rain on the stage! We learned that they built a stage a few inches above the real stage with drainage holes and hung a pipe with holes for water to fall down. These high school kids did a great job singing and dancing in the rain! We were amazed!
Someone got a little too comfy in the dark auditorium and was a little too still . . . a short nap happened!
After a short intermission, we got back into the story. There was some kissing by the actors, which made the boys squeal with disgust!!! The final number was spectacular, and the whole cast did a great job.
Side note: Almost immediately, Lincoln and Beau noticed that one of the guys in the show was one of their favorite lifeguards from the club (from last summer). They thought it was cool that they knew Daniel and wanted to wait for him after the show to say hi. It was such a great show, and we were definitely impressed by our local high school. We can't wait to see another show by the Pearce Theatre department.
