I thought I would get out of attending this year since I have no Austinaires, but Qatar was asked to be the stage manager and to play a walk on part for one of the songs. So off I went with Zeke, who ditched me to sit with some friends, next time he can pay his own way. I ended up sitting by my fifth grade teacher, Mrs Graber, and having a great conversation and the show was lots of fun to boot.
Toby's grandson MC'ed and he was hilarious, I enjoyed the evening and was home by a bit after nine PM. Not a bad evening. The solos were sad and long, but Martha and Dylan were the light in the darkness and brightened up the rest of the show.
