Way Back When-esday

Cheryl over at Twinfatuation hosts this one. Go on over to see who else is playing – and join in too!

This one comes from 1983. I was in the 3rd grade and had just switched from a private school that closed (the teachers decided to get a divorce) to the public school.

A few things happened to cast me as Annie in the school musical of the same name: one of my private school teachers ended up being the music teacher at my public school, so she knew me; and the person who was originally cast as Annie moved away.

Now…before you get all impressed, let me explain that an elementary school “musical” is really just the music teacher assigning songs from the musical to the different classes and having those classes get up on stage to sing them in the right order. I just got to sing with more than one class (and may have had a solo or two πŸ™‚ )

  3. Oh, that’s adorable! I always wanted to be Annie, but even with my red(dish) hair, my signing voice always got in the way πŸ™‚ Ah well, the sun’ll come out tomorrow…

  4. Very cute! Love it that they put you in unmatched socks. πŸ˜›

  5. You looked so precious!

  6. GIRL! Look at your mismatched, hard-knock life socks! Love your performance stance, too. Your kids will SO love this story….I sure did!

    Thanks for playing along with Way Back When-esday so wonderfully, Nancy!
