Bittersweet End :(

Yesterday was the last performance of Les Mis at the Aurora Theater.  My last show was Saturday night.  I have made some wonderful friends there.  Though I will be seeing Christa, Alma and Mabel again, it is the grown up cast I will miss because I will not see them on a daily basis like I did during the run of the show.  I am going to miss being “Young Eponine”,  all the backstage fun we had and how wonderfully nice everyone was to us kids.  I want to thank Justin, AC and Anthony for giving me the role.  I want to thank all the grown-ups involved in the production, especially all the actors I got to work with.  I have learned so much from all of you.  Because of you, I have found a new love in theater, especially musical theater.  I want to thank Christa, Alma, Mabel, DJ and Hoke (the “kids” in the show).  I love you guys so much and I hope that we work together again in the future!

Last, but not least, I want to thank all those that came to see the show.  I really do hope you enjoyed it!  It was the most successful show in the Aurora Theater’s history with over 10,000 tickets sold!  Thank you so much for being a part of the ‘Revolution’! :)
