Saturday Night with my Girl

Filed under: Posts with Video,Uncategorized — Amy @ 6:00 am

We had our first full-day play rehearsal on Saturday.

I’m the musical director, so I sit in the pit and conduct the singing and work with the pit band leader on tempo, breaks, repeats, etc.

Monkey Girl is one of the lead orphans, (we’re doing “Annie”) and when the kids aren’t on stage, they are hanging out in the cafeteria, practicing lines, dances, or just hanging out.

Apparently, on Saturday, the kids were busy trying to figure out how to do the “Cup Song” from the movie Pitch Perfect.

Monkey Girl came home, slamming cups around, trying to work it out.

She’s never actually seen Pitch Perfect, so I pulled out the DVD and skipped through to that scene.

Once she actually saw the scene, she had a bit more rhythm to her slamming.

I knew there had to be a tutorial on YouTube because, seriously, what isn’t there a tutorial for on YouTube?

I found one, sat down, learned it for myself, called her into the room, offered to teach it to her, and then the fun began.

Real Man and the boys were very patient with us, even when Real Man came into the room asking “You girls got that down yet?”

Finally, we did.

Then, we added the song.  Monkey Girl is still working on doing both at the same time, but here’s what I came up with:

We had a lot of fun and this was definitely one of my favorite Saturday nights.


  1. Haven’t seen the movie yet, but now I’m really curious and excited. What fun you two must have had together working on that! 🙂

    • The movie is ridiculous, but I love it. 🙂
