If Tommy Teletype had been there, he would have said, “Whoo–ee!” But it was an orphan-only first rehearsal for Sam Shade and The Case of the True Meaning of Christmas.

Our fabulous “gang of 8” got their first look at the script, went over all their songs, and generally had a good time getting to know each other. This is a cute, smart, talented group with some good singing voices and the ability to grab hold of a role quickly.

In the spirit of our recent blog post on “Success is a Good Thing” and the Unlimited book and movie, our orphan gang agreed that we should set the bar high and reach for the stars! We think they can do it!

They will be a pleasure to work with, and they will bring a lot of entertaining energy to this show! Actually, 6 of them were part of A Pirates’ Tale cast this summer.

Chip Conrad was on hand to help with rehearsal, and Abby Cranfill took some great pictures as these kids got their first introduction to FFP’s exclusive, all-original tale of Sam Shade, private eye.

Later today we have the whole-cast read through. Everyone finds out who they are!
