What do you do when your best friend is in a musical in Missouri? You grab your husband, hop in the car, drive the five hours, and go see her!
Let me explain. One of my very best friends, Mary, is an amazing actress. She has spent the last year in Jonah (the musical) in Branson, Missouri. Branson is only a few hours from Memphis, so we knew we had to get there to see her.
Spending time with Mary is always fun, no matter where we are. This time, though, we got to see where she has spent the last year, explore Branson, and see a great show. We also got to meet her beau (Bonjour, Tim!!!) anddddd shoot zombies. Yep. We went to this fun place that's a mix between an amusement park ride and a video game. Want to guess who was the number one shooter? (it was me!)
Ok, I have to talk about Jonah for a second. Sight and Sound is a Christian theater company that creates incredible musicals based on the stories of the Bible. Even if my best friend wasn't in the show, I would have thoroughly enjoyed it. The sets were amazing, the giant fish was so believable, and the music was so so so good. Jonah will be running for at least another year so if you have the opportunity to go to Branson (or their other theater in Pennsylvania), deffffffinitely make some time to see it! You won't be disappointed.
PS. This wasn't the first time we traveled to see Mary perform! Last time, we went to Paducah, Kentucky.
