That wonderful moment before a rehearsal starts and everyone is standing around just so....

It was last Saturday morning. I was at one of Zach Theatre's smaller auditoriums getting ready for a dress rehearsal of "The Very Hungry Caterpillar." It's a play whose intended audience is very young children and their very happy parents.

The tech folks were doing last minute lighting and sound checks when the young woman in the center stepped into a beautiful bit of light and another cast member stopped to fix the young woman's braid. 

I was getting my cameras ready and I lifted up one of them and clicked off a few frames. I particularly liked this one because her expression is so sweet.

And yes, the show was absolutely great.
