I have no idea. But I wanted to offer a little word of encouragement to the rest of you who have some knowledge of musicals. Melissa said last night that she would not be able to participate much today due to family being in town and I just passed Mom on my way to work, she was traveling up to SLC (I think?) so the two time winner and the defending champion are more or less out of commission today. Therefore, Harmony, Jeri and Carol this is your chance. I can't believe that you would let Jeff a first timer win this competition without a fight.

Just Once ? from Fantasticks.
First minimalist musical I ever saw. Took a minute to imagine all the scenery but I love the music. I think the music is by Tom Jones. Great advice for raising kids like Plant a radish, get a radish and at the end the narrator saying leave the wall, you must always leave the wall. I always grew radishes in my vegetable plot growing up. That and beans were my favorites.

Mom C said...

Sorry, Robert, I think you passed Dad. I'm home with nothing to do but prepare for attending my St George workshop tomorrow and the rest of the week. And Charlotte, so far you've picked songs from my memory. Thanks.

Robert said...

Well Mom just blew my theory didn't she! :)

Mom C said...

Actually, the song is Much More. Had the wrong line running in my head. The other song I was trying to remember was "Try to Remember" punny huh? I sang "Soon It's Gonna Rain" at an assembly at SUU, do they still have those? Can't remember why. Leadership or Sorority Rush or something.

Carol said...

Thanks for the encouragement - but I have won this one time and have the lovely CD and beautiful Carol post to show for it. Today at work is a wild one - so we'll see if I have the chance to hop in on this. So far, not much of a chance!

Mom C said...

Love the busybody fathers who want to make their children fall in love so they pretend to fight so the kids will rebel and fall in love. Shades of Romeo and Juliet except it ends happily. Which is Italian by way of English Shakespeare, not German.

Carol said...

PS - forgot to mention that I LOVE the new pictures in the header. That Heather just gets cuter and cuter!!

Harmony said...

I thought I was familiar with the songs from the Fantastiks, but I don't remember this one. Still, this musical is a favorite of mine. In fact, it was the first musical I saw live, at a community theatre near Brigham City when I was about 6 years old. I remember getting a kick out of the kids putting beans in the ears. I also saw this three summers ago at Sundance with my aunts and girl cousins.

Romeo an Juliet are indeed Italian, but the German language has Gottfried Keller's Romeo und Julia auf dem Dorfe (Romeo and Juliet in the villiage), for what it is worth.

Jeri said...

Robert gave me a glimmer of hope there for a minute... then Mom Corry DASHED it to pieces! so far in this lighten round I am zero for three... keep kicking the kids off the computer at the hour mark, only to find yet another post that I have to google cause i have no idea! good new is that I haven't seen or heard an of them - (well, I have seen the 9:00 one, but it's been so many years ago that I didn't recognized it even after I googled it...

Harmony mentioned kids putting beans in their ears... it reminded me of the summer I was playing a game with my little bro & sis. I taught them to put a cherry pit right up against their nostril, then you'd blow out quickly and see how far we could "shoot" them. Mark sucked IN through his nose and lodged the pit way up in there... had to go to the doc and they used a big long hook thing to pull it back out. Mom and dad weren't super impressed with my game :)

Jeri said...

and I agree with carol - the new pictures are great! I LOVE the first one, with heather "gardening"

Charlotte said...

Robert: 1 point for being first on the board. Another point for trying to help out your fellow players, even if it didn't quite work out.

Mom: 4 points for musical and song. 3 points for all that other info as well. 1 point for the "try to remember" pun.

Total: 8

Carol: No points, but thanks for noticing the new header. That picture on the left is Heather giving me her "surprised" face. I've been trying to capture it on camera for about a week. Saturday, I finally found success, and decided it warranted a new header.

Harmony: 1 point for having seen this musical (twice, in fact!) That's two more times than I have, unfortunately.

Charlotte said...

Jeff: a point for defending your beloved German, and tying it to our musical.

Jeri: Two points for that hilarious story. Classic!

Carol said...

Not going for points here - but I can say that I have a few stories of my older siblings doing things to me or getting me to do things! Fortunately, no items up my nose - but lots and lots of 'let Carol do it' type of stories. I got in more trouble than you'll know for my oder siblings who were wiser than me!

Mom C said...

I made a golden gown for my HS graduation dance. It had a princess waist, sleeveless, pretty straight skirt and a lace bolero jacket. I had my hair up and I felt elegant!

Charlotte said...

And a point for that!

(Seriously, I know I say this and think this, but sometimes I take it for granted that YOU ARE AND PRETTY MUCH HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A STELLAR SEWER! Making a graduation dance dress in high school? Wow!)
