Pearl, me and my sister, Jean.
Nope, no Kevin Bacon here.
Although, I'm quite sure he'd have been thrilled with the remake of his 80's breakout hit.
Pearl's high school christened their brand new, state of the art auditorium with a musical production of Footloose.
For two months, the cast and crew worked after school to master enormous dance numbers, all while polishing the more serious side of the story.
Pearl was spot on as Eleanor Dunbar, one of Beaumont's most conservative citizens. She can swing a gavel and burn a book like nobody's business.
We weren't able to get any pictures of the performance. This auditorium is the real deal. Complete with the "no flash photography" rule. By the time we actually located her after the show, she'd already gotten into her street clothes.
It'll take six weeks for the DVD to come out. Until then, she and her fellow cast members will have to wait to enjoy the show. Being backstage, waiting to go on, is not the best seat in the house.
I know she'll be as proud of her performance as we are.
