That's my baby!
This year when auditions started up (in September) for the First Alliance Christmas Production, Emma boldly stated, "I will be trying out for the role of Zuzu."
She rehearsed, auditioned, and got the part, and we have been working away ever since.
The show starts this week and although we are very tired (I am the wrangler for the 4 Bailey children for the duration of the production) with 6 hour rehearsals almost every day, we are so excited!
This is the first time Emma will be on stage in front of an audience (except for dance) and a very large audience at that...about 10,000 tickets have been sold!

That's all for now, we're off to dress rehearsal!
You should watch this video of Derek singing Nessun Dorma...SO GOOD
(plus, I'm in the choir in the back!)
