GGG in FronteraFest

Wednesday night, the Girls had the last slot of the evening. FronteraFest, the largest Fringe Theatre Festival in the Southwest, is a great opportunity to expose new audiences to our work. And it’s a jurried festival, so we have a chance of winning and continuing on to the next level and performing again.

Our show on Wednesday got off to a shaky start (We’ve been waiting for the rehearsal time to work on our openings, which can often be the weakest part of the show.) But after a little initial negativity, we started doing some solid work. Here’s some photos from the show, Museum: The Musical!

Julie and Mo playing snobby Europeans looking around the Art Museum singing “Art or Crap?”

Me, playing a defiant young girl who wants her little sister to stop copying everything she does.

During the middle of the show I escape my little sister by becoming adopted by the European couple. But in the end, my sister and I realize how much we miss each other and are happily reunited. Ah, the realism of musical theatre.
