This year the theme was Mary Poppins. It was the first year that Stella's group was asked to come into the studio to record the vocals before the performances.
Her first performance was at Trolley Square. It is always so fun to see the show for the first time. Porter was there and he went CRAZY for Stella when he saw her on stage. He wanted to run right up and join her. I'm glad he didn't though, he didn't know any of the moves. But Miss Stella did and she was adorable. Since I only watch her, I can only assume she is the best. Even when she is at the very back of everyone, she still shines like the star she always has been.
Stella had a performance that was attended in a surprise visit from all the Gummows. It was the only show that I didn't have my best camera. The rest of the shows were attended by all the welcome Stella supporters. And only two shows got rained out this year. One was rescheduled at a very strange, very interesting "reception center."
I love the spring shows as they carry on into summer. Stella is done with To The Top and ready to move up into higher and older classes. We are so lucky to have this fun outlet for her. It is perfect.
