Friday night I went with some of my friends to see the broadway show "The Producers." It was held at The Muni, an outdoor theatre near Lake Springfield. The Producers is about a public accountant who wants to be a producer. They had a CPA firm on stage during a couple of the scenes. The accountant quits his job at the firm and partners with broadway producer. They
want to raise $2 million, put on really bad $100k show and keep all the rest of the money. The show they decide to do is a gay rendition of about springtime with Adolf Hitler. It turns out to be a huge success and one of the producers gets put in jail and the other one runs off to Rio.
Anyway, one of the friends I have been hanging out with has about 5 parts in the show and has to change costumes about 7 times! Her name is Lexie and she has been doing these shows and beauty pageants for a long time. Last year she won Illinois Idol and tried out for American Idol,
but didn't make it any further.
A lot of my friends here are musically inclined. Jeremiah in this picture with the black hat on has a CD coming out next week. He is in a Christian music group and sings for the church I go to.
He also might be on American Idol this year! He just tried out in Chicago, but can't tell us much about it. We know he made it to the next round and has to try out again in August.
I have another friend named Will in this picture who also has a CD out and is currently singing in Arizona and Nevada for the weekend. He plays accoustic guitar and writes all of his own songs.
It looks like his website is not working, but here is his myspace - you can listen to a couple of his songs here:
