Amazing Theatrical Musical Stella!

Oh, Dear Ones! I'm so thrilled you've come to experience another adventure with Stella! After her episode yesterday I asked her what she'd like to do. She said, "I want to go to New York and be in a musical on Broadway!" Well, since I was trying to make up for not being with Stella last week, I told her that's just what we'd do.

Now, you know in Stella's one dimensional world in Blogland we can go anywhere and do anything we'd like and we did! So just humor us, please! ;)

I had spread the word ahead of time so when we arrived in New York we were greeted by the mayor and the press was everywhere! She was just thrilled to death. We were taken by limo to the fabulous Ritz-Carlton Hotel and given a suite overlooking Central Park! Oh, how grand!
Stella decided she would have one night showings only! So we really had to hustle to have all the information out! It's amazing what can be done these days. They called in actors and actresses who looked just like the olden ones in every one of these movie musicals! Amazing isn't it?
Now, Stella performed in the top seven favorite musicals of all time! That's show an evening! She was just marvelous! Did you know she could act? Did you know she could sing and dance? My head was spinning as I watched her cast her spell on everyone around her! She would attend the rehearsals in the afternoons, come back to the hotel for a tiny nap and then was driven back to the theater in the evening. We had a late dinner each evening in Manhatten after the shows.
Each show was a sell out! Everyone was there! The Theater District was a buzz with talk of the wonderfully talented Stella! All the theaters were dark for this week ~ they did it just for Stella! They all wanted to come and see the performance of Stella the Aida Paperdoll of Blogland! Yes, they did!
Oh, our Stella acted, sang and danced her little heart out! Her picture was on the rolling marque in Times Square! As you walked down the street you could read every one's lips...they were all talking about this wonderful Stella! She was a marvel!
Her last performance was "The Sound of Music" and this was my favorite. She looked so lovely and the set really did look like Austria! Just look at her! I was so proud of her, too! I wish I had had the time to get the message out to all of you so maybe some of you could have come to see her. There's never been a happening like this before on Broadway, ever! Seven musicals ~ one on each separate night of the week!

The New York Times had a picture of our Stella on the front page every morning! The critics had nothing but wonderfulness to say about her! The revues of each musical were outstanding. No one had every starred in these roles and brought in the crowds like our Stella. Tickets were even sold for the rehearsals so everyone could come and see our Stella! Oh, what a week!

After our whirlwind week, we were heading back home to Texas! At the airport we were escorted to a special room which was set up just for Stella. The mayor and members of the press were there to send her off with their gratitude for all of the love and goodwill she had brought to New York with her from Blogland! She had even helped boost the economy of old New York! Like I've said before ~ Amazing!

As soon as we walked in the door at home, we dropped our suitcases and gifts. I was greeted with hugs and kisses from Mr. Precious and Chloe Dawn. Stella was greeted by hugs and kisses from Gally! After a light dinner, Stella said she just wanted to soak in a nice hot bubble bath until she turned into a prune! We gals know what she meant! As I went off to bed, I could hear her softly singing the songs from the musicals to Gally! Now all was right with the world again!

Night night Stella and Gally!

Be sure to tune in tomorrow for more adventures with Stella!

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

The Sound of Music

The hills are alive with the sound of music
With songs they have sung for a thousand years
The hills fill my heart with the sound of music
My heart wants to sing every song it hears

My heart wants to beat like the wings of the birds
that rise from the lake to the trees
My heart wants to sigh like a chime that flies
from a church on a breeze
To laugh like a brook when it trips and falls over
stones on its way
To sing through the night like a lark who is learning to pray

I go to the hills when my heart is lonely
I know I will hear what I've heard before
My heart will be blessed with the sound of music
And I'll sing once more
~sung by Stella on Broadway

  5. OH WOW!!!

    The Raggedy Girl

  14. I hope Stella had a front row center seat reserved for her hostess/manager, Miss Shelia!
    I like Sound of Music best too because Stella could really let her hair down in that role.
    I hope you and Stella have your feet up today, you both should go get a massage or something after the week you had.
    Hugs Silly Shelia, Bridget

  15. Oh, Show Boat... my FAVORITE Uncle used to sing "Old Man River" to me with his deeeep bass voice. (sigh)

Just joking. I can hardly keep up with her and certainly can't wait for your next post. Thanks so much.

  25. Okay. Remember yesterday when I told you that you'd lost your flippin' mind?

    You've lost it again.


    Justiney :o )

  26. Glory Be!!! Stella acts, too!! She must've been so terribly BORED with her lame visit to my house!! Taking her Bass Pro and the recycling center and a wedding shower---all so pitifully blah in comparison to the spectacular time she's had with you and NOW on Broadway!

    I know she will NEVER forget her debut--please tell her I thought she looked wonderful in every single poster!! OH, and please tell her I'm proud of her and that I always knew she could do whatever she set her mind to!!

    Dana :)

  27. This was soooo cute! I love seeing Stella on all of those Broadway posters. Your commentary of your trip was such fun. I do want to ask if Chloe Dawn has felt any jealousy toward the new dog in the house! laurie
