It's a Dog's Life

OP Middle School Musical '08- It's a Dog's Life
Jillie........... a Golden Retriever in the City Dogs chorus.
Once again Jillie had a great time being a part of the middle school musical. She was disappointed to not get a speaking part, but there were so few available for girls in this show. She did a great job in her part though. She sang well and stayed in character. The super long rehearsals every day during the last week coupled with our entire family being sick for weeks with an awful head and chest cold caused Jillie to completely lose her voice by the 2nd show. She ended up lip syncing during that performance!

Looking very sad as the City Dogs are told of the death of another dog...


I am so proud of Jillie for hanging in there, taking her commitment to the show seriously and doing her very best. It was an unusual choice for a show I think, although I did understand the story line better on the 2nd performance. Still it was a little dark. Anyhow, here's hoping for a really upbeat musical next year with a speaking part for Jillie Beans!

She made a cute little doggie. Funny that you call her Jillie Beans. We say the same thing to my Jilly. :)
