Are you looking for a fun family activity this weekend?  Xanadu at St. Marks Church is the show to see!  Madilynne and I set out in our black and white dresses, white sunglasses, silver necklaces and our black purses for a girl’s night out.  Not knowing what the evening had in store for us added to the excitement.

We arrived shortly before showtime and were greeted by a lovely lady dressed in leg warmers, roller skates and pixies.  We knew at this point we were in for a real treat!  We found our seats giggling with excitement (in the back of course because we had smuggled in granola bars and juice boxes for treats) and got ready for some rockin’ 80’s fun.

For those of you don’t know, the original Xanadu was a 1980 romantic musical fantasy film starring Olivia Newton-John, which has been redone in a modern spoof, and now become an award winning Broadway hit.

Thanks to Sunshine Mamas one and only Nancy Matican-Bock, St. Marks Church and an amazing cast, Xandu- The Surprise Broadway Hit, has been brought to St. Marks Church, complete with 80’s musical hits such as I’m Alive and my personal favorite, Evil Woman .

The story features a Greek Muse, Kira, who travels from Mt. Olympus to help a struggling artist, Sonny, in Venice Beach, CA.  Sonny has a dream of starting the first ever Roller Disco.  Thanks to the jealous antics of her sisters, Kira falls in a forbidden love with Sonny making for a crazy, hilarious performance with singing, dancing, roller skating and all around best darn entertainment I’ve experienced!

This is a tale of love, determination and adventure that will keep you on the edge of your seat…heck Madilynne couldn’t even sit down, she was standing on my lap the majority of the 90 minute show! She is now determined to sing and dance like Ms. Nancy!

Please support our local community, Mamas!  Take your family to enjoy Xanadu in Indialantic, FL!  You can thank me later. 😉

Hats off to Nancy Matican Bock and the entire talented St. Marks Xanadu cast!  All of you did an outstanding job and by far exceeded my expectations of a local performance- or any performance for that matter.  Thank you all for an amazing evening…I know Xanadu will stay in our hearts for a lifetime.

You can see Xanadu Saturday, June 18, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. or Sunday June 19, 2011 at 2:00 p.m.  Tickets are $10.

    Wow…you really know how to bring tears to my eyes…tears of joy that is. I cannot thank you enough for coming to see the show and bringing Madilynne. First let me say that the two of looked so beautiful.

    Second, the theatre is something special to me that I have shared with my daughter Gaya (who skated happily across the stage in the finale with her ponytails and tiger shorts). So, to me when a parent and child can experience the magically powers of the theatre, there is nothing greater.

    Thirdly, our community which we all call home has so much talent within. From the amazing mamas who contribute to sunshinemamas.com, to the artists who express through color and music, to all thsoe who volunteer their time tirelessly in order to make our town a home and inspire the world around them.

    The Shekinah Community Theatre Group at St. Marks is a place to express yourself and share any talent that you would like to offer. If anyone is interested in performing (no experience neccessary) please check the website @ http://www.musicartsatstmarks.com/

    As far as Miss Madilynne and her new found theatrical interest…for children ages 13 and under, this fall we will be producing “Guys and Dolls Jr.” We would love to see her and all other aspiring actors at kickoff.

    Lori, as you and I have said so many times before…it is amazing that we have found the key to a fulfilling life. Family first and foremost, but if you are lucky enough to find others that inspire, support you and make you laugh…then you have made all your dreams come (insert echo) true, true, true 🙂
