Our little Teague is auditioning for Miss Saigon on Friday, so, if he makes it, you have to go see it!!! ;)

I want to see Wicked...badly...but I wasn't able to get tickets.

Nice. Is he trying out for Tam? (I don't remember any other child roles)

That would be very cool...and a nice excuse to go see it yet again. :)
