The Hills are Alive with the Sound of Relief

First off, I'm really sorry that I haven't posted a Writing Wednesday when I was supposed to, hopefully I'll have it up on Wednesday, but there is a reason.
For the last week, I have had intensive rehearsals for my school's production of Sound of Music.
The School's Poster
I starred as Mother Abbess, which is quite a good part in the scheme of things. I got more lines than a year 13 who is much better at drama than me. To be perfectly honest with you, I only just started getting my lines completely right in our rehearsal on Thursday, around 6 hours before our debut!
Mother Abbess gets 5 songs, two of which have substantial solos.
How do you solve a problem like Maria - You kick her out the Abbey and tell her to fall in love
My Favourite Things - Being able to go home at three o'clock
Climb Every Mountain - I think I'll stay on the ground thanks
Wedding Procession (Maria Reprise) - I knew kicking her out was a good idea
Climb Every Mountain Reprise - My little baby, off to escape Nazis
