Bobby Takes the Stage in this Throwback Thursday Pic
If there's one thing I've learned from doing the MY Morning Show with Stacey, it's to let my guard down a bit and not be afraid to make a fool of myself. I mean, I recently danced in dress for crying out loud! So now I thought I'd share a pic of me from way back in the day.
Here you see a young Bobby, along with his cast mates in the Mt. Vernon High School (not Posey County btw) production of You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, circa 1990-91. That's it...that's the entire cast. That was my sophomore year. Can you tell which one is me?
I joke around about being embarrassed of this picture, but the truth is I have nothing but fond memories of my times on the stage. Ya' see, I was in Show Choir from 6th grade through high school. I also was a part of the musicals each year during that time. In fact, my first role in a musical was in 7th grade when I was cast as the Artful Dodger in the high school production of Oliver! That was followed by roles in Annie (Burt Healy), Pippen (The Leading Player), You're A Good Man Charlie Brown (can you guess?), Fiddler on the Roof (Tevye) and The Sound of Music (Captain Von Trapp).
My wife and I are both huge fans of musicals, and we love the fact that our kids are fans too. If I could recommend musicals...you have to see RENT, it's one of the best ever...and more recently we really enjoyed The Greatest Showman.
