Got a nice note from Mike Ficocelli of Little Fig Stage, the teen group based at Harvey School that presented the original musical “The True Colors of Weedle” at Off-Broadway’s Players Theatre last weekend. Here, in part is his report:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Both Saturday and Sunday were magical: standing ovations, packed crowds.Ã‚Â The kids put on a stellar performance.Ã‚Â To add to the excitement, we met with Laura Bell Bundy (of Broadway’s “Legally Blonde”) in her dressing room after our performance on Saturday to hand deliver a check for $500, money we raised for her charity.Ã¢â‚¬?
Ã¢â‚¬Å“She kept us in her dressing room for over 30 minutes telling us all about her career and past performance at the Players Theatre with Brittany Spears.Ã‚Â The kids were tickled to hear that they were performing on the same stage.Ã¢â‚¬?
Sounds like they’re off to a great start. In the spring, they’ll be performing Ficocelli’s musical “Wild Imaginings.” Looking forward to that.
