We moved on to St. George, Utah, where we had the happy surprise of running into two WIN friends, Judy and Bobbe. We all pulled into the Elks lodge parking lot which is bordered by gorgeous red rocks.
Although we had been through St. George before, we had never stopped. Bobbe and Judy had already planned to attend a couple of performances at nearby Tuacahn Amphitheatre. The amphitheatre is artistically situated in Padre Canyon, surrounded by 1500 foot red sandstone cliffs. I tagged along with the ladies when they attended a performance of Disney's Aladdin.
We had to get into the 'picture' too. Bobbe, Judy, and I hammed it up as Jasmine, Aladdin, and the Genie.
The show was amazing, worthy of the Disney name. The scenery was clever and changed with no interruption in the story.
There was a suitably villainous villain (with funny sidekick.)
And to keep the guys entertained, there were dancing girls.
The special effects were pretty cool. Aladdin and Jasmine took flight out over the audience.
And the genie flew off for a tropical vacation.
The whole cast was terrific and it was a magical night.
It also brought back wonderful memories of all the musicals I was in, first in high school, then with a community choral/theatrical group. I wasn't much of an actress, but I loved being one of the dancers and singing in the chorus.
