Nicolas as Rolf in the Sound of Music

Nicolas takes on the role of Rolf in the Sound of Music for 4 performances this week.
I'm so proud of him!  This is a precious scene right after he sings "You are Sixteen Going on Seventeen" to Liesl.  Makes me teary every time!

Not so sweet anymore... Rolf has turned away from his Austrian heritage and is warning Maria and Liesl that if they know what's "good for them" they'll encourage Captain von Trapp to follow suit.
My daughter, Anna, plays Louisa in the play.  I hope to get some good photos of her and all the awesome costume changes soon!
If you're local, you can still see the full Broadway version of the musical tomorrow and Friday night at 6pm.
