I know a star!

Saturday afternoon Sam and I joined Laura and Ryan and his family in Carrollton at the Plaza Arts Center to watch THE SOUND OF MUSIC live!!

Maria was played by Heidi Lewis.
No, Heidi WAS - IS - Maria!!!

Thanks to Facebook I got these pictures....
Here's Maria (Heidi) singing "I've Got Confidence".
It was so super.

Here she's helping the children to not be afraid of a storm...
... by thinking of their Favorite Things!

Long story short, Maria marries Captain Von Trapp....

And then later the family performs....
... and then escapes from the Nazis. 

As you may (or may not) know, THE SOUND OF MUSIC is not just my favorite musical,
it is my absolute favorite movie of all time.

And this production of it - with precious Heidi Lewis as Maria - far exceeded my expectations.

 Her last performance was yesterday (Dec. 1) at 2:00.

Hopefully Heidi can rest and relax now....
... and get ready for something else exciting and tremendous.

She has perfect acting skills
and an absolutely beautiful voice
with perfect pitch.

And the sky's her limit.

I'm so proud to know her.

Here is her
 'obligatory Thanksgiving picture'
with her and her husband, Chris, and dog, Scout.
Chris is in his third year of medical school.
Whoa. This couple has an exciting future ahead of them.

And I actually know them!!!

(Thanks to my daughter and son-in-law who introduced me to them.)

I like knowing famous people.
