Kimberly, the Understudy!

Kimberly got a call from me about two hours before the show on Monday.  DeeDee (one of the doo-wop girls) was really sick and Kimberly had to go on for her.   Now, Kimberly wasn’t really the understudy, there wasn’t one… but she was the choreographer.  So, she came and rehearsed what she could in an hour and Rachel Duff, our musical director, sat back stage and sang for her through a mic.  She was amazing!  The cast rallied around her and if you didn’t know the story, you wouldn’t have know anything was wrong!  Congrats, Kimberly, Rachel and the cast of Little Shop!

Talk about foreshadowing!
