So, the show went off just great. I was, of course, a nervous wreck before the show, but once on the stage, all the jitters melted away.
It was a delightful evening with faculty members from St. Francis University as well as community members, friends, and family in the audience.
Following the performance a lovely reception was held inside the mansion. There was food in several of the rooms (numbering 33 rooms!) and dancing in the ballroom with a lovely young group of jazz musicians.
I was the last to leave as is usually the case. Perhaps I felt a bit like Cinderella at the ball? I worked very hard on this show and then it was over just like that!
I did not leave my glass slipper behind though, I am still wearing it...for good luck, of course!
