Last night was opening night for Mara in Cinderella! She had to be at the theater by 4pm to get her makeup and costume on and to run through the play.
Around 5:30ish our dear friends, Kathy and Justin, Melissia and Ari and Alyssa and Ainsely came over for a Mexican potluck dinner. I made chicken and cottage cheese enchiladas and Enchiladas Calabaza (squash enchiladas), Kathy brought homemade guacamole, peach salsa, queso and chips, Alyssa brought Horchata, a delicious Mexican beverage, and Melissia brought a beautiful Tres Leche cake that she got from a Mexican Bakery near her house. We had a fabulous meal with great food and great conversation. Then it was time to head over to the theater. We walked over since it is about a block from out house.
Mara was the doorman, checking tickets :)
The play was wonderful! They all did such a great job. Mara nailed her lines and seemed completely at home on the stage :) The costumes were beautiful and the makeup was incredible, especially on the mice and rat. Mara is taking her camera tonight to get pictures of everyone. 12 more performances to go :)
