Last year, my mother passed away two weeks before The Front Lawn Players' production of As You Like It. With daughters playing Rosalind, Celia, and Touchstone, there should have been a huge, picture-laden blog post afterward, but you can imagine I did not much feel like blogging at that time. This year, they performed Romeo and Juliet with Alice (aka Agnes) playing the role of a lifetime. Here are a few pictures for posterity. And maybe, just maybe, I will post those As You Like It photos one of these days.

But Lord Capulet doesn't want any trouble.
Poor Paris doesn't stand a chance now.
