Z Center Stage Theater Co.

Little did Holly know what tradition she was starting when she tried out for her first play in the spring on '95 (Correct me on the year if I'm wrong, Holly.) Since then each of my siblings and I have been part of the Z Center Stage Theater Company. Minus the first play Holly could have tried out for and didn't, each Porter child has been in every play that was possible for them. What kind of legacy is that! Mrs. Brant, the director has had a Porter in every play since '95 minus the year after Eric graduated since Glen was only in eighth grade at that point. Assuming that Rose continues to do every play she can there will be a Porter involved in the theater company until 2011, when she graduates. (Minus the one year of course). I thought this might be an interesting tidbit of information, but I always wanted to say how exciting I am because this weekend we are going to Washington to see Glen and Rose in the musical "Annie". This will be the first play that I have seen from Z Center Stage since before I was in high school. They have a new performing arts center, which I'm insanely jealous of. We are actually just going for the weekend because Stephen wasn't able to get work off (I won't go into that). Anyway, wishing those two luck this week! Oh, the picture is the only one I could find with all my silbings and I with anything to do with plays. If you couldn't guess it was when I was in Snow White (hence, the nasty black wig on my head!) Oh, Glen and Rose were such babies! Break a leg, guys! We all love you and are happy that you are carrying on the tradition!

You guys look so cute! How long ago was that taken? Have fun in Washington this weekend. Good luck to Gen and Rose.

I was going to put in the post that this picture was taken in November of '99. This is what happens when I write a little and go back to it later. That and the typos or things that don't make sense...

*sniff* I remember that play. You looked awful and my dress was too big. But we had fun. :-)

Has there been other times when 2 of you have been on the stage together? Just wondering.
