Tonight we went into Reno to watch the show "Shake, Rattle & Roll" at the Eldorado. What a blast! From the moment we headed into the showroom only to see a large group of Red Hat Society ladies all sitting near the front, we could tell it was going to be a fun evening. =)
The outfits were so colorful, the lighting was beautiful, and the music--spectacular! It was so thrilling to hear all of those wonderful "Oldies" and seeing all of the great dance numbers. After being in our school's musical (State Fair) last fall semester, I think I have an even greater appreciation for the coordination and time it takes to put a show together. I cannot even imagine how much work went into getting this show ready, and how much work it takes each night for them to keep up such an amazing level of energy! My parents and I continually remarked on that. This show is packed with energy!
The lady I sat next to was a lot of fun, and we all had a great time clapping, singing, and occasionally dancing along with the music. I love those songs, from the music of Chuck Barry to Elvis Presley, and so much more! This definitely was a memorable night for my family, and I'm so glad we had a chance to go to this together. The place was really "shaking" with excitement tonight!
