Over the past 4 1/2 years, i have made many friends at BRLT...not just the cast of Beauty & the Beast. I did show after show after show & you just connect with certain people & feel that you could be friends with them forever. Two of my favorites are Danielle & Charlynn.
The first time i saw Danielle was in a play at Baker Little Theatre. She was cute as a button. Later, we both auditioned for Best Little Whorehouse in Texas & we were both cast. I never thought we'd become such good friends as she is 11 years younger than I am! But we did. I just love her to pieces. She is beautiful, inside & out. And a very talented actress.

I heard about Charlynn long before i met her - she began theatre before i did but wasn't doing any shows when i got started. Then we both auditioned for Urinetown, the musical. I met her in the hall waiting for our turns to audition. I liked her immediately. She is so easy to talk to, friendly, funny, & totally cool. I had heard that we would probably be up for the same roles - we both wanted Pennywise - & that she is an excellent actress. They weren't sure of her singing voice because she usually did plays. So i went in knowing she was my competition. But it didn't matter. Instant friends. We both got cast - but not as Pennywise! I was Little Becky & she was Old Ma Strong.
Favorite picture of me & Charlynn! December 2007.
All three of us haven't done a show for awhile & for awhile there we were constantly trying to get together - saying we would but never making it happen. I was trying to get together with Charlynn & Danielle, separately...then i saw on Facebook that they were also trying to get together with each other! We decided to make it the three of us & we had a date at Bistro Byronz. We decided to try to do this once a month. And so, last night, we met for dinner. At Capital City Grill. We invited a few other girlfriends, but they couldn't make it. We'll do it again in December though. :)
Anyway, just had to share about two good friends i am thankful for! Last night we had so much fun at dinner! We talked & talked & talked for HOURS!! We talked about Danielle's school (she will be student teaching very soon!), Marriage (me & Charlynn), Baby Fever (me haha), & theater - new shows (crimes of the heart - charlynn & i are both auditioning!) & reminiscing about Whorehouse, Urinetown & other fun times. Had a great time & can't wait to get together again! Love these girls!
