Our Halloween weekend we were heading toward Kentucky for a show in Hopkinsville, but we had to stop along the way. When our company manager planned for a stop in Knoxville we found out that the cast of "Legally Blonde" was going to be performing in Knoxville at the same time! We were so excited because all of us have friends on that tour, including my great friend, Caroline Cuseo. We got in contact with home offices in New York for both of our tours and worked out getting tickets to see their show! We all got dressed up and went to dinner before seeing the show. They seriously knocked it out of the park! What a fun show... we had a blast. To celebrate Halloween weekend after the show, the two casts went out into Knoxville and danced and partied into the wee hours of the night. It was so good to be able to see so many friends and make many new friends. They are a great group of people and are working hard to put on consistent, exciting shows!
Next we finally headed to Kentucky, which was so exciting because it was the first time I would be seeing a lot of friends and family from home. The night we got there we went to see Paranormal Activity 2 (unimpressed) for the scary weekend and just hung around the hotel. The next day I was waiting in Starbucks when Mom and Dad came and picked me up. It was SO GOOD to see them and such a relief to get some time with them to just vent and catch up and be loved on. What a blessing they are to me. The show was in an old movie house that was a really unique space and had some crazy passages and staircases backstage. It was especially fun to see NKU friends Kay, Derek, and Montez. They drove so far and sat in the front row having a BLAST! It made the show so much fun!!! I also got to perform for a lot of extended family members who came down. After the show Kay, Der, and Monty stayed for a bit and we all hung out at Applebees. The cast LOVED them and we had a really fun night and my friends had to drive back SO LATE, but I was super-excited to have them.
