On with the Show!

I keep singing the Bugs Bunny Theme Song in my head:

Overture, curtain, lights,
This is it, the night of nights
No more rehearsing and nursing our parts
We know every part by heart
Overture, curtain, lights
This is it, we'll hit the heights
And oh what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it

Tonight what heights we'll hit
On with the show this is it.

The kids have been working hard at rehearsals for six weeks now. Tonight they preview their show to a live audience and tomorrow is opening night! They have nine performances over the next three weeks.

Here's a family portrait of the Cheaper by the Dozen cast:

Tell James and Lisa that Nathan gets to speak German and actually sing in German in the play! That's because the Gilbreth children were required to listen to language records in the bathroom. Boy's Bathroom = German; Girl's Bathroom = French.
