ANNIE REHEARSALS...Just thinking about tomorrow.

GREETINGS FROM SOUTH AFRICA!
 TOBY here...

Hello there to all my furry-friends across the world!
This is my last weekend off before the big times roll.  Soon the production of
ANNIE
will be in full swing.
I have three more rehearsals next week and a visit to the theatre before we are into the hectic final production week of the
23rd-28th MAY.

(Should anyone wish to purchase tickets, you can call the school -
011 782 6226
or you can contact me and I will try and purchase tickets for you)

This whole experience has been such fun!

I love the children at the school and the vibe at the rehearsals. 
The music and singing is really beautiful and catchy.
I get so much attention.  Annie, as well as a number of other cast members, always come and spend time with me, while I wait for my scenes.

(The cast members do some 'relaxing' and breathing exercises before the rehearsals. 
I get to weave in and out between them.)

That 'tomorrow' song is really catchy and I have caught Maxmom humming it around the house. 
Sometimes I too, just slink into one of the beds and try...
'JUST THINKING ABOUT TOMORROW'

Above: "Annie", "the dog catcher" and me practicing the scene where Annie decides to call me
'SANDY'

ABOVE: "Annie" and me just chilling out.
Check it out...I think I am bigger than her, BOL! 
I love it when she pats and strokes me.

ABOVE: Me in my crate - waiting for the 'Christmas' scene...
                            Maxmom sometimes gives me a chewy to keep me occupied. 
        Chewing doesn't always give nice photographs though.
Check out my expression.


This weekend, however, its time to REALLY chill and to simply...

Think about tomorrow...

Sending lotsaluv to you all and have a wonderful weekend.

Hello dear Caryl,
I'd like to be in SA, so I'd be able to see your wonderful Toby on stage. I hope there will be a video taken so that you can share it. I know Toby will be great...
Have a nice weekend.
Big hugs from Alsace/France.

hey Toby,

I love your "thinking about tomorrow" face! You are such a cutie!

My thoughts are with you as you enter this final week before your big debut! I know you will rock! You have worked so hard, and given it your all, and you have overcome a lot to get to this point. Paws crossed that this week goes smoothly and successfully, so by opening night you are 100% ready to go!

Thinking of you and sending you tons of well wishes for great success! Good luck Toby! And Maxmom!!

You & the cast have really worked hard for this play. I am very sure it is going to turn out great! Yes, that song is indeed very catchy. Hoomie Melissa used to sing it all the time.
