GALLERY: Chalmette High Cultural Arts Center presents: The Little Mermaid by Zack Smith

When 16 hour rehearsal days payoff...


Once again the crew, musicians, and above all the kids (performers and artists) performed to the top of their ability at this year's rendition of The Little Mermaid. It is truly a sight to see the amount of talent up on one stage and down the road in St. Bernard Parish. Every note by the live orchestra, every tap of dance, vibrato and libretto was done by a kid and some as young as six years old. The Cassar family lived up to expectations once again and delivered a body of work that the kids of The Performing Arts Academy exploded with energy and gusto on the stage. I'll let the rest of this review continue in images.

St. Bernard Night Lightning by Zack Smith

After making the long trips back home after a day in the city, the sunsets are so captivating as the cumulonimbus start their ascent to the SW..the sun hits them just right. I am always in my car, and never have my good camera w me.

But two nights ago around nautical twilight, there appeared a lightning storm that gave my backyard some added's all about your background!
