I'm Chrys aka TannersMom7. I'm a musician and music teacher in a fabulous independent school in RI. I absolutely love the musical Wicked. We saw it in NY for one of our anniversaries some years ago. Since then, I've sung the part of Elphaba in several songs including "For Good." I've also sung, "I'm Not That Girl." <BR> <BR> I look forward to getting to know you!

And I am still number one. So, I get the feeling that exercise is a big challenge for us. <BR> <BR> Here is my challenge to you for October: One day per week, stop by this thread and post your total fitness minutes for that week. At the end of the month, I will total everyone's minutes and the person with the most fitness minutes will get a goodie from me. And I've got lots of points to use to give...

Sun, 29 Aug 2010 09:36:28 EST Favorite Musicals Besides Wicked, what are your favorite musicals? <BR> <BR> I love Little Shop of Horrors - my hubby & I have staged it so many times with various high schools & community theaters, yet I still listen to the music regularly. Same with Godspell & JCS & Joseph. (I did musical theater with our church's teen group for several years - can you tell?!) <BR> <BR> My oldest son saw Chitty Chitty Bang Bang in London with my husband when he was only 5 (he's now 11), and he still talks about it. <BR> <...

First i want to say Thank you for getting the Most activity Goodie for the last couple weeks. <BR> <BR> But i dont think i deserve the most activity goodie!

Idina (yea im probably spelling it wrong but i dont feel like looking it up) <BR> <BR> Was the head vocal coach for the Glees team biggest rival. The are having a ton of broadway stars on that show. Its awesome. <BR> <BR> Kristin Chenowerth was on last fall, and Jonathon Groff is on it now (from Spring Awakenings with Lea Michele ) <BR> <BR> I know i have officially just geeked ( or gleeked) myself out jsut now, but its such a good show! Wed, 21 Apr 2010 13:17:35 EST Opening Night Boston!!! OMG!!! So my fiance noticed Wicked is coming back to Boston and has been telling me to look into tickets. So I finally did last night on a whim. And I go, "A Wed. night show might have more tix left, I'll look there. Oh look, opening night is Wed. 9/1. I'll check out orchestra. What's this? Two seats in front row center orchestra? SQUEE!" <BR> <BR> It was mad expensive but Simon said it was worth it. So I bought them! Wed. 9/1 at 7:30 pm in the Boston Opera House, OPENING NIGHT, ro...

So i am back with a vengence! Im going to defy gravity this time. Lol <BR> <BR> Of course im still a total Broadway nut!! In fact i listen to Pandora free itnernet radio, (if you look up Wicked they can create a Wicked fan station for you) and i have di... Sun, 11 Apr 2010 00:12:11 EST A WICKED TEAM.. SERIOUSLY? AHH! my prayers have been answered!!!! <BR> <BR> WICKED (and the rest of Broadway lol) is my LIFE! <BR> <BR> I look forward to getting to know everyone! <BR> <BR> -Chelsea <em>244</em> <BR> <BR> Wed, 24 Feb 2010 00:58:27 EST OMG you guys! I can't believe there's a Wicked Team! I found it through MDMNINA because she's also on the Harry Potter team and it was in her signature. OMG! <BR> <BR> Okay, I've calmed down. Hi, my name is Sarah, and I'm obsessed with Wicked. I saw it once in Boston from Orchestra Row J because my fiance is AWESOME. I performed in a tiny version of it for a parade float and I played/sang the part of Glinda. In a blond wig and ridiculous pink dress. I have to find a pic sometime. I've memorized ev... Thu, 4 Feb 2010 13:02:24 EST Ok, Ok, Im back. Lol. Hello all its been a long time! <BR> <BR> I have been very busy, i aquired a baby (well he is 18 months now) and my whole healthy living plan went to h3ll. <BR> <BR> I gained back 54 of the 70lbs i originally lost. Ick. But i have lost 22lbs of it since starting back up in the beginning of January. <BR> <BR> I got a goodie for most exercise for the past 2 weeks.

What was your favorite gift this year. <BR> <BR> Of couse, mine was having the grandbaby around for an entire week! But I also love the coffee mug that Santa left in my stocking. <BR> <BR> It says "I'm a Wicked Witch. What's your excuse?" LOL <em>424</em> Sat, 26 Dec 2009 13:13:47 EST I'mmmmmmm Baaaaaaaaaack Well, I had to come back. Since music has always been a big part of my life, it only makes sense. Thanks MD! <BR> Jeanne Wed, 23 Dec 2009 16:12:00 EST Dying to go to New York in 2010! Have you heard that Catherine Zeta-Jones is playing Desiree in Little Night Music? And Angel Landsbury is playing the grandmother? <BR> <BR> And there is a revival of Ragtime on Broadway. <BR> <BR> Hubby and I are trying to save up the funds to go. Maybe in March or April. Could maybe see Wicked again while we were there. <BR> <BR> Anyone else want to join us? Sat, 19 Dec 2009 12:07:19 EST Favorite Wicked Song? Do you have a favorite song from the musical? <BR> <BR> It depends on my mood. Defying Gravity & Changed for the Better are usually my favorites, though. Tue, 8 Dec 2009 13:58:49 EST Listen to the Wicked Soundtrack Before Seeing It? Did you know the music and/or the storyline before you saw the show the first time? Do you listen to the soundtrack right before seeing the show? <BR> <BR> I knew almost nothing about Wicked before I saw it, and I definitely did not know the music. If I were to see it again, I would not listen to the soundtrack for several weeks beforehand - I have learned from past experience that I enjoy a musical more if I have not recently heard the music. Wed, 2 Dec 2009 21:06:15 EST Which Character Would You Play? If you had your choice, which character in Wicked would you play?! <BR> <BR> I would love to play Elphaba - although, to just be in the chorus would literally be a dream come true. Tue, 1 Dec 2009 18:21:36 EST Wicked on YouTube? Do you watch videos of or about Wicked on YouTube? <BR> <BR> I have watched news stories, featurettes, tv show performances, that sort of thing. I won't watch videos of live theater performances, though. Because my DH was a theater performer & pro musician for so long, and therefore I know that videoing those performances is illegal, I just can't watch them. <BR> <BR> What do you think? Mon, 30 Nov 2009 22:32:56 EST Getting Control of My Eating! I am horrid horrid horrid with my eating! I don't know when I lost it...I just lost all control! I need to really get myself back on track. <BR> <BR> How about you? Mon, 30 Nov 2009 22:16:35 EST December Challenge Did you start a thread this month?? <BR> <BR> Did you comment on a thread today?? Mon, 30 Nov 2009 13:08:02 EST New Username Hi! It's me, irish1991, now Irish_Aguirre. Sorry for the confusion, but when I started SP last month, I didn't think much about my username & I felt like changing it slightly. Silly, I know, but it works better for me. Hope that's ok! Sat, 19 Sep 2009 16:05:18 EST New to the team Hello! I joined SP about 3 weeks ago, and I am amazed by the support that I have already received here. Last night, I listened to the Wicked soundtrack for the first time in a while (I saw the musical in Sept. 2008 - loved it!), and I decided to see if there is a team for that. Glad you are here! BTW, I wrote a blog today on a weight-loss lesson that I learned from "Defying Gravity" - silly, I'm sure, but it meant something to me. Thu, 17 Sep 2009 12:43:15 EST What a cutie, and talented! Just in case you haven't seen this!!! <BR> <link> </link> <BR> <BR> Jeanne Sun, 19 Jul 2009 01:57:35 EST July Challenge For this month, I challenge you to exercise at least 30 minutes per day, at least 5 days per week. <BR> <BR> At the end of each week, please post the number of days you reached your goal. At the end of the month, a SparkGoodie will be awarded to the person who had the most days of at leat 30 minutes! Tue, 30 Jun 2009 10:33:06 EST The Next Person This is a fun and easy game. Just read the statement. Decided whether it is true about you. Post your response, either true or false. Then, put in a new statement for the next person (TNP). <BR> <BR> For example: <BR> <BR> TNP loves Sparkpeople Tue, 30 Jun 2009 10:27:49 EST Daily Chat: Tuesday, April 28, 2009 Thought I would start a chat so we know where to go to chitter chatter. Hope everyone keeps it healthy today. The weather is great here in NJ and that goes a long way toward keeping folks motivated. <BR> <BR> Wishing the Team a Super Day! Tue, 28 Apr 2009 06:57:58 EST Did you stay within your calorie range today? How many calories did you consume? Was it too many or too few? Thu, 2 Apr 2009 12:37:50 EST Have you huddled today? Did you huddle today? What number were you on the list? Thu, 2 Apr 2009 12:36:39 EST Have you seen Wicked? Where? How many times? Who was in the cast? Thu, 2 Apr 2009 12:35:41 EST How many points until your next trophy? 8546 Thu, 2 Apr 2009 12:33:09 EST Leader I think our leader has abandoned SparkPeople. Her point total never changes, so I suspect she has given us up. <BR> <BR> Does anyone know how we go about changing leaders? Wed, 25 Mar 2009 15:55:50 EST Who is your favorite Wicked character? Mine is Elphaba. I think I have learned a great deal from her about my own hopeless quest for my father's love. "Too long I've been afraid of, losing love I guess I've lost. Well, if that's love, it comes at much too high a cost." <BR> <BR> I would love to perform the role. However, I will have to wait until they do it in a nursing home, cuz I am way, way too old. I can still sing it though. Tue, 17 Mar 2009 14:00:07 EST Introductions for fellow Ozions Welcome! I'm hoping this team catches on to other people. If you know anyother Wicked lovers on SP, go ahead and invite them. We can never have too much support! <BR> <BR> Well, I'm Wicked1217 (or Karisa). I've been in love with this musical for about 2 years now. I saw it in Chicago twice last summer with Lisa Brescia and Annaleigh Ashford (both are AMAZING!). I will also be seeing it again in April in Salt Lake (about 5 hours from school) and couldn't pass up the opportunity to go ag... Mon, 26 Jan 2009 02:11:21 EST
