I wish you all could have been there on this night! After working with Shelley for three years in preparation for this, we all knew (OK. Hoped...but still we knew!) this would be her night. She had transformed from talking about "if" I become Kate to "when" I become Kate and it really felt like the title was hers to take home that night. Her songs were ready, her sass was confident, and her costumes were stunning (yes! she makes them all herself by hand!)
TMS students Taylor Van Denburgh, Jodi Rowe, and friend Joanne Tierney, joined me to cheer Shelley on to victory! I tell you, it's one of the greatest things about this job. Having someone have the courage to have a dream, to enlist your help to work toward that goal, to see them work HARD over time to do the work that needs to be done, and then if you're lucky, to get to see them achieve their dream. It just doesn't get better than this.
And special thanks to Taylor for bringing the boas for us all!
