I'd rather be anything but ordinary, please. http://bmldesign.com/babylamatina/ I am 28. I love children, and am thankful that I get to spend my days with them. I especially love that I get to spend my life loving my little boy, Gavin. One of my pet peeves is switching the radio station at the end of a song without hearing what's on next. Grammatical and spelling errors irk me (than/then). You're - you are, your - your. I love and live musical theatre, and not because I think I'm more cultured or I want others to love it too, but just because it's damn good. My greatest accomplishment in life thus far was winning my Toyota Celica. I am awkwardly and overly close to my family (which is a HUGE problem at times). Give me any line from FRIENDS, and I can pretty much complete the punchline. I've sworn that I would audition for American Idol, and come up with some excuse not to. I finally auditioned, and have become quite jaded by the experience. I have a home that is overpriced and wonderful. Sue Bartolozzi is my best friend. Cake is my weakness. They usually say people are either strong in science and math or strong in history and language arts. Oddly enough, I'm strong in math and language arts. Behind closed doors, I tend to act like the kids I teach. I look young, and I'm often questioned whether I'm my 21 year-old sister's twin. Woodloch Pines and Disney World are my vacations of choice, but I love to travel everywhere. Three continents down, three to go. I love singing, kissing in the rain (how's that for cliche), sleeping late, dessert, and Brian. :)

Hello! I am a Drama Club Advisor of an elementary school in NJ. I am so torn over which show to choose, so if anyone out there is willing to advise me, here is what you may need to know to form an opinion:* My Drama Club is only made up of 5th and 6th graders. Enrollment is generally between 80-90 students. Last year's production had a total of 92 kids.* The program is rapidly growing, and since our first Jr. musical five years ago, the quality has improved, the interest has grown, and we are now very "noticed" by administrators. The pinnacle of what we have accomplished was last year's production of The Little Mermaid, Jr. I want to live up to that pressure.* I always hated when teachers or directors chose a show with a certain person in mind for a certain role, but I can't hide the fact that I have an incoming 6th grader who is PHENOMENAL. When I say she will most likely sing on Broadway one day, I mean it sincerely. She was my Ariel last year, and I would love to feature her, as this will be her last year in my Drama Club.* Finally, my participation from the boys is always unknown. Over the past two years, I was able to do Seuss Jr. and Mermaid Jr. so successfully because of the boys I had for male leads. I may get a good number of boys this year, but I'm not quite sure about the amount of boys who will be able to carry a show or even successfully do a lead role.ANY help, advice, opinions, information you can give me would be so very much appreciated. Thank you in advance! :)

Hello,I was considering Willy Wonka for my elementary Drama Club, but now that I see Little Mermaid, Jr. is available for licensing, I am thinking about choosing it instead. I work with a large group (my Seussical, Jr. had 81 participants).I have one boy who I would really like to feature - he was Jojo in last year's Seuss Jr. Since I am not too familiar with the Little Mermaid songs for this version, can anyone tell me which male part would have the most featured singing? I would really like to showcase his talent, and it will be his last year in elementary school, so I want to make sure I at least consider him for the appropriate role.Thank you!
