Today's summary (I'll blabber more about this later!) of Sunday's activities is totally swiped from the credit card commercials:
Tickets to Award Show: $140.00 (before substantial discounts and underwriting by sponsors!)
Dresses and shoes for the girls and Dianne : Approx. $200.00 (Thanks to Plato's Closet, end of season sales and Dianne's dress being 60% off and then 40% off that price!)
Double-sided sticky tape to hold Dianne's dress on in all the right places: $3.50 from Walgreens.
Tux rental: $160.00
Being there, dressed to the nines, to see Dianne win her first "Arts for Life" award for her role in "Narnia" in 2007: Priceless!!!
Congratulations, Dianne! We are so proud of you!
Here we are all dressed up before the show! L-R daughter Rebecca, Dianne, Rachel, and Gregg - proprietor of "One Dad's Life." What a bunch of beautiful girls! (plus me)
Here's Dianne doing her acceptance speech for "Best Actress in a Cameo Role"! I was crying like a baby! I could barely text the message to Twitter that she won! Unfortunately, I totally blew the exposure, but this is the best picture I had to share. It was nice that someone she knew had presented her award, the excited man on the right is Glenn Guillermo, who has directed Dianne and has also performed with her in the past (and in Narnia!).
Here is Dianne at the end of the show, holding her award, and waiting for the group photos. Isn't she gorgeous? She looks the part of an award winning actress, doesn't she? Can you tell I'm proud?
This final shot (for today) is Dianne with Joel Hackbarth, a good friend and the director for Narnia : The Musical. That's Joel's pile of awards sitting behind him. He's good!
This is such a big event that I will blog more details about the show later in the week!
