To: "Scott, W" <>,
WE DID another wonderful show! When greeting our guests as they exited the show, without exception, they loved it! We did put a few to sleep...but then - they were under two years old!  One parent's complaint, which came from her smiling child by her side said, "she was disappointed she didn't see the flying horse"!  I agreed "Me too" ! Don't you think we should have one that pops up just when the kids turn around?

In one of this week's shows we couldn't help but notice an amazing young girl with disabilities on the front row physically supported by her Mom so she too could catch the Spirit of Rendezvous?  I couldn't understand exactly what she was trying to say but there was NO doubt she was touched and loved the show!  Some of you may have seen her in her wheel chair on the Trail of Hope YPM vignettes or in the sites. "She" was one of God's angels and they're ever present here in Nauvoo!

Was last night's show short of perfect? Could we have used an 8:15 practice? Could we have gone back into the "green" room and tweeked and sang some more? Could we have repeated "Little Town" entrance 1-15 more times so we all start singing  "Nauvoo" on the 16th beat? Do some/all of us need to be REMINDED when Relief Society starts and do we need more practice getting our scripts word perfect? Yes to all of the above!  But we...delivered a very wonderful show. And the Halford's debut was "next" to perfect!!! I'm looking forward to hearing a "word perfect" testimony from his creamy deep voice.

Having only one show allowed some of you to go see Living Legends for the last time or the YPM vignettes on the Trail of Hope!  Some of you hurried to Annie's to socialize over yummy custard. There were those who you went home to grab an extra hour of sleep or watch another beautiful Nauvoo sunset (E/Young and I did ).  Whatever you did.....the 2nd show off - was a rare summer "gift" for all of your double nights of diligence and hard work! So...June 27th will go down in my journal as another bless-ed day in Nauvoo! Thank you!
Collectively we're a superb cast of Nauvoo missionaries, individually we're God's angels singing our way into the hearts of His children! Thank you for your service! Thank you for your Vim and Vigor! Thank you for climbing the steep Nauvoo learning curve in such a short period of time. Thank you for believing in me... for your dedication and willingness to serve! AND thank you for your love and support while I mount my steep learning curve!

With all my  Sister Young

PS.....Nonie Sorensen wrote Rendezvous music and will be in Nauvoo on July 4th. I LOVE this music and am so excited to have her hear how well you sing. I know she has tickets for the 8:15 show on the 4th which will be the Sarah Granger cast. But I'm hoping she'll be able to hear Lucy and Emma as well! We'll sing our hearts out just in case!   Further, Elder Openshaw is willing to tutor all the Thomas and Elizabeth's duet Farewell to Nauvoo. I will coordinate a schedule with him so we can use his expertise to enhance her wonderful song! Also, any of you wanting to meet with me concerning your vignettes/parts email me asap. It is my goal to direct you as I have been instructed so the play stays pure to the purpose of it's inspired author!
