My favourite bit of the weekend July 5, 2010

My favourite bit of the weekend was the Mary Poppins show that I did. On the day we had to be up early because I had a gym display in the morning. When the gym display was over we went to Kingsgate theatre which was where we were doing the show.

I was in the blue dressing room because for my tap and ballet I was doing the Highland fling and Sailor tap and that was where everyone who did those were put. We were there at 11:30 and the first show started a 2:00 so we had time to practice.

When the first show started I was really nervous because I was first on stage with some of my friends. The first dance went really well and when we came off we were really relieved and started to get ready for the next dance. The second dance I went really wrong because we were meant to cover up some people and I accidently let one of them show. I was really cross with myself for letting that happen but we were back on stage a few minutes later and that was alright. Then it was time for the finale which I think was really good.

Then it was the second half of the show which involved my quickest change yet. But first I did my Beatles Jazz and my friend fell over when she did a kick and got really upset; but the second Jazz dance was really good. After the Jazz dances I had to run to my dressing room to get into my sailor costume and I only had 4 minutes to get into it and I was ready in the nick of time. After the sailor dance I had to get ready for the Highland fling I was in the wrong place for one bit so I had to kind of move while dancing. After the Highland fling I had nothing to do so I just sat and watched through the window.

After the show we had 2 hours of nothing so we just got ready for the next show. The beginning of the first show was good but for the second dance I had an umbrella and it broke but I had had an umbrella in the first one and it was fine but my umbrella completely broke and I almost cried but there was no time for crying so I just got on with it. The rest of the dances were ok and when I was finished I went and watched the show on a tv.

After the show we went home and I played on my new IPOD touch.

That was my favourite bit of the weekend.
