What I Did For Love

The WCHS Theatre Musical Review
1997-2015
was phenomenal.


50 alumni+present students brought down the house.


This was the team from 1997-2001.

They were like, 
"Do you realize they are calling us 'old'."

What's the old Clairol commercial, 
"I'm not getting older, 
I'm getting better."

Yelp!
That would be this group!


One of the leading actresses in Christy's group
was unable to make the rehearsals
but was able to see the show.
It was like a high school reunion for this group.


These three were in Dames at Sea.
The musical was an off-Broadway show
and they performed it at Literary One Act. 


Of course, Christy is still my favorite singer and actress.

The musical review featured her in 
"Summer Nights" and "Hopelessly Devoted" from Grease,
"What I Did for Love" from A Chorus Line, 
"Til There was You" from The Music Man.


I know the obstacles she's had to overcome
even in the weeks of rehearsals, 
physical challenges that she doesn't share.

I know the years that there was no song
in her heart as she waited.


I cried when she sang, "What I Did for Love,"
because I know what she did this weekend was for love. 
There is once again a song in her heart.
