BWW Blog: Maggie Cansler - Superheroes in Love and Fantastical Family Night Rehearsals BWW Blog: Maggie Cansler - Superheroes in Love and Fantastical Family Night Rehearsals
by Guest Blogger: Meggie Cansler on August 01, 2015

As one glorious concert ends, another rehearsal process has begun in full swing! Our cast of 'Fantastical Family Fun Night' has been at it rehearsing all week! This show has some goodies in it such as a fantastic tap routine to Step in Time, a groovy Jackson Five Medley, and I get to sing some Disney! Heaven! The arrangement is 'When you Wish Upon a Star' as a quartet which I think will be so beautiful under the stars in Jack London State Park. I also love the chance to have an excuse to sing to the stars and make my own wishes for things to come. When is the last time you wished on a star? In New York City, you never see any stars. Sonoma's night skies glitter nightly. (more...)
