So Long Kitty & Baby, and Back to the USA!

On Sunday we not only said goodbye to Patrick, Bree and Tera-Lee, but also to Kitty and Baby!

You remember Kitty and Baby – they have traveled the U.S. with us for the past two years, dressing up in every town. They were first found in the boys’ chorus room in Toronto when “Spamalot” was there the first time around. We decided it would be fitting for them to return to their home and so we said goodbye to them at the end of our run on Sunday.

But not before a ceremony led by Ken, who read some words and processed with Darryl, Gurr and I around the dressing rooms with Kitty and Baby under a shroud before placing them back in their resting place in a cubby in the men’s dressing room.

It was sad to see them go! Kitty and Baby, you will be missed! The tour will not be the same without you! Perhaps they will be found by another tour and taken on another odyssey around the country. Who knows?

Yesterday we left Canada and drove to Syracuse. It was a long day, which started out with the bus being over an hour late.

Fortunately the border crossing was very easy – checking the whole bus-load of us took less time than it usually takes for one person to get through customs at the airport. And our border guard was cute, to boot!

Now we are in Syracuse, New York for a week, then to West Point for a week to re-tech the show with a new set. And after that, two weeks off! I’m super excited for NY Sheep and Wool – I’ll be there on the Sunday. Anyone else going??
