And here's a sneak peek at IllumiNations, which we'll watch together on Friday night after that dinner event. Remember when Emmy cried last time we saw this because she was so moved? May we all be that awestruck!

All right, I don't know how many of you have seen the Beyonce video...but it's taken from a Bob Fosse piece that was on the Ed Sullivan show in the 60's. Featuring non other than the extremely talented Gwen Verdon. Anyway, Steve found all of this info and wanted me to be sure I shared with all of you right away. Enjoy; I do think the Gwen Verdon version is better to watch than the Beyonce, but that's just me.

Summer is now in full swing here at the MadCAP studios, and the month of August is looking good for a summer "After Dark" (so start picking that music!) and some advanced planning for the Disney tour next year. Additionally, the Board of Directors has asked for any volunteers willing to perform at a Fundraising Kickoff Event and then Gala Grand Opening. If you've got any ideas or suggestions, please let me know what you're thinking.
We've got lots happening this summer, and I'm still looking for some interns in July and August. if you are interested, please send me your availability and I'll e-mail you an assignment.
Also, just a quick reminder to all of you--enrollment is limited in Senior Ensemble for next year, so please get your paperwork in ASAP when we open enrollment. I'd hate to have the group fill before you sign up!
Check out this little video tour of DMMD to see what it's all about if you've never been: http://disneyyouthgroups.disney.go.com/wdyp/programs/programOverview?page=MMDProgramOverviewPage

What an acceptance speech-happy to see the nod to Sondheim!

This is my pick for the Tony Awards next week. It has been nominated for 13 awards, and I'm always anxious to see just what will win. Who's having a Tony party? Steve and I always play it a little low key and have a bottle of champagne and some great hors d'oeuvres followed by some delicious chocolate. I'm hoping to see "In the Heights" win best musical, I'd love to see it win for choreography, and Lin-Manuel Miranda has to win for best score and/or outstanding actor...I guess it's all a waiting game!

In the new year, look for an After Dark worksheet that will help us all be better prepared for the coming performances...Paul and I are working on cooking that up right now. Also, we'll need to make some decisions about our uniform dresses...
As we continue to prepare for the upcoming tour, keep in mind next year's season...we'll need to prepare our audition package for Disney and start reaching towards that goal, both with our fundraising efforts and with our performance goals. Each of you is coming so far with individual performances as well as our Ensemble numbers...things just keep getting better. In 2008, I would like to see us reach an even higher potential, and I have a nationally known clinicial lined up to help us workshop our performance pieces during the 2008-2009 season.
I don't know how you've been enjoying the massive snowfalls this December, but in the tiny bit of spare time I had, I was loving it! :)
