This year, Tessa Plano Dance Theatre Spring Show was a twist on Mary Poppins. It took the line from the movie where Burt says it had all happened before and shows how Mary was HIS nanny when Burt was a child and changed the course of his life as well. Tessa tried out for a part and got one of the leads! She was thrilled. She played Ernestine --basically a version of Jane from Mary Poppins. She worked really hard, and we were very proud of her. Jake was asked to take part in the musical again this year as Artie the artist and Burt's dad, and he did a fantastic job. Most importantly, though, he was able to spend some wonderful daddy daughter time on this production with Tessa. It was good fun for both of them.
