Anything Can Happen, If You Let It

Maggie auditioned and was cast in the role of Jane Banks in Mary Poppins. This year marks the 25th anniversary of Peach State Summer Theatre, Georgia's official professional summer theatre.

Throwing it back. Same shirt. NYC to Valdosta. Supercalifragilistic!

First fitting

Getting "wiggy" with it again this summer

Maggie and Hannah Trowell (The first time Maggie saw Hannah on the TGV stage as Peter Pan; she exclaimed that she wanted to be her. Thus the theatre bug was caught.) Excited they get to share the stage this summer! 

Mary Poppins (Megan Wheeler), Jane Banks and Bert (Olin Davidson). So excited these two flew south for the summer! We know they miss NYC; but we are so fortunate to have them with us for this production.

With 17 shows, we had to come up with something different yet meaningful. She anxiously awaits each one and the card that goes with the charm.

We are so blessed to have PSST in Valdosta. It's like having broadway in our backyard.

Come see us this summer y'all! 

Sweet Charity Benefit for Easter Seals

When our friends at Easter Seals South Georgia asked if they could use Luke's pic to publicize Sweet Charity; we couldn't say no. I don't think they have ever told Luke no. The support that Easter Seals provides means the world to  our family. 

When Luke was first diagnosed with Childhood Apraxia of Speech, Dyspraxia and Sensory Processing Disorder I turned to December Storey at our local Easter Seals for information and assistance. She and Easter Seals have truly played a big role in gaining the best therapy and equipment that Luke needed to be successful; as well as provided valuable educational opportunities for our family.

Please consider supporting this worthy cause. If you need to purchase tickets; please do not hesitate to contact me or Easter Seals.  We look forward to seeing y'all there. 

I can't think of a better way to spend a summer night than with chocolate and charity. 

It's going to be sweet!
