Good morning, Conservatory-ers!
Happy birthday to Aralyn Day, one of my long-time kiddos...a birthday which I will always remember because it's also my wedding anniversary! When she was celebrating being one year old, I was getting married to my husband. Go figure. Happy day to us!
Fun announcements on the horizon today, but I won't take up too much of your time.

3. "Big Fish" Opens TONIGHT
A charming and beautiful story about the tangled relationship between father and son. NOT a show to be missed! Visit www.playhousemerced.com for tickets before it sells out.
I'm gonna go help the amazing tech crew at Playhouse now. See you all at the theatre!
