Just read an article about the "Harry Potter" cast and what they look like now. It put me in a nostalgic mood. I then started to imagine my young performers and what they must look like now so many years later. Most of my first performers must be married with children of their own by now. They surely must have progressed in their many and varied careers. I know that a few have remained active in theater productions, but not many. Some seem to remember fondly being in my shows, though. It surprises me to randomly get a note of appreciation now and again.
Thank goodness for social media. Seeing these young people now posting with their families seems so surreal. It is definitely hard to recognize them! They look very different now than they did as kids. Guess they will live in my memory forever as 5-12 year olds!
So much fondness!

I remember them well.
My firstborn was too young to be in your shows when our paths crossed. She hung out with us at Narnia rehearsals. The first year that she was a Sunbeam , you were introducing a new song from the brand new children's songbook to Primary. Innately aware of timing and pitch, she asked if she should sing what you sang or what Sister Alexander played. ONE note was different. One short note. I don't recall the answer to that question. She later minored in music and now serves in music callings in her ward. When needed, she arranges music to suit the voices available to her.

Dawn Haole and I still remember tiny bits of these rehearsals. Specifically a lady in grey sweats singing the song (I don't know the title, just the lyrics) "Now the real adventure starts. A journey that will truly test the best that's in our hearts . . ." Don't know why that song in particular is still stuck in my head in its entirety 30ish years later.
