This is one of those years that you forget about until someone brings it up
and then you smile and say oh yea, 1995. This was also a good year in terms
of kids. We picked up a few local kids that played huge role for many years
to come. Bridget Holleran, Amy Grelle, Rick Subel and Ron Strain stayed for
years, and Pam, Candace and Sarah brought us an infectious excitement that
showed me that chemistry is important. We used the curtains again (different
color) and we did the 40's show using Einstein's Dreams as our music. Ya
know in retrospect this WAS a fun show to watch. The table was a cool prop,
the costumes were very member friendly, and the chair choreography at the
beginning is still some of the best stuff Jim Moore ever wrote.
My fondest memory?
Pam sliding off of the table at the first show and the crowd going wild for
her. See she wasn't suppose to go off the table she was suppose to jump onto
the table. She had never jumped onto the table in her costume and the
sweater didn't grab and off she went, ..... into a summersault and onto her
feet without missing a beat. When they got off the floor she said "I gather
by the reaction I'm gonna have to do that every show aren't I?" And the
rest is history.
