Wicked (musical)

Image via Wikipedia

Girl Scouts went to New Orleans April 3.  Cadette Girl Scout Lily writes about her trip:

 

I went to New Orleans with my friends to see the musical play Wicked, which is the story of the Wicked Witch of the West.  It was at the Mahalia Jackson Theater near the French Quarter, so we walked to Jackson Square, got hot dogs and admired the artwork. Then we ate beignets at the Café du Monde. Now that was good! Then we hurried back to the theater to get to our seats in time for the play.

 

I really liked Wicked because I liked the costumes, the music, the sets, and the story. I liked the costumes because some of them were sparkly and old-fashioned. I liked the music because it was bouncy and the singers were really good. The sets were great; I liked the dragon and Glinda's bubble the best. The dragon sat on top of the set and blew steam while its head moved. Glinda's bubble descended from the top of the stage with Glinda in it. I liked the story because there was no clear line between good and evil, so it was more like the real world.  I had a great time!

 

Thanks for the review, Lily - sounds like you had a great time!

Hey everybody!

leah.jpgI'm Leah, a Senior Scout from Satsuma. I've been a Girl Scout for 11 years, and recently earned my Gold Award. This is my first post, so I'm hoping some other girls will help me out, and post some interesting stuff!

So, has anyone ever heard of Satsuma? .. didn't think so.  Satsuma is a small town, north of Mobile. Satsuma High School has around 1,500 students. In Satsuma, football (mainly) and baseball are the sports of choice. A lot of the students don't put as much emphasis on academics as they should. Well, as much as I think they should. I'm a dork I guess you could say. I play soccer, which is another one of those little-emphasized sports, and most of my friends are basically dorks too. In a school that isn't focused on what I am, I'm sure I'm not the only one counting down the days until college.

For me, college is a chance to live somewhere that is totally focused on the same things I am. I'm hoping to get a scholarship to Auburn University and study pharmacy.

Surely there are other girls out there who feel the same way I do. I'd like to hear your story.
