A few months ago in March, Judy and I stayed with my cousin, Carol Perkins, at her home in Boulder Creek, CA. (Santa Cruz Mountains)
As always we had a great time with her and Buddy (her best friend – Dog). The highlight of the trip was going to see her granddaughter, Miranda, perform in a musical at her high school. It was the last night of the show on a Saturday evening. We had a great dinner at a local restaurant and then went to the show.
Wow!! What a treat. It was an enjoyable evening watching this group of talented actors sing and dance to the audience’s joy and amazement. The main character, Millie, was played by Miranda Robinson – she is really talented folks!. We met her mother, Susan Robinson (Carol’s daughter) in the parking lot there. She saved seats for us and I immediately brought our the camera. The pictures and video are from that camera taken by a guy who shakes. Most of the pictures came out OK but holding the camera still during the exciting performance was a challenge.
“Millie” was the christening show in the, just finished, San Lorenzo Valley High School performing arts center in Felton, CA.. This school has a phenomenal performing arts program as you can witness by watching the video. They, evidently, do three different high school performances a year.

As a former high school teacher it makes my heart sing to watch the enjoyment and fun that these students are having together. Accomplishment and success build steps for a productive adult life. It was a fantastic job by everyone involved in this production!!!
