Natalie's Wish to be in a Broadway Show

Natalie is a 7-year-old girl who loves movies and has always dreamed of being in a play.  Natalie’s wish to be in a Broadway show brought her to New York City where she performed in the Radio City Christmas Spectacular!

On December 16th, Natalie, along with her parents and sister Evelyn, arrived in the Big Apple. The city was a winter wonderland and Natalie made sure to bring her biggest coat!  Natalie and her family had a big day on Thursday when they saw the Radio City Christmas Spectacular where she was dazzled by the famous Rockettes. The rest of the day was spent exploring New York City!

Friday was the day Natalie had been waiting for! After seeing the Radio City Christmas Spectacular, it was her turn to be featured in the show. Natalie appeared in the scene “New York at Christmas” and of course she stole the show! Afterwards, she went backstage to meet the Rockettes and take a tour of Radio City.

On Natalie’s last day in the city, she and her family took a ferry boat to Ellis Island where she saw the Statue of Liberty. After the ferry boat ride, Natalie had free time to take in all of the beauty of New York. Her final evening in the city was spent seeing the Lion King Broadway show at the Minskoff Theater. The show was amazing and featured all her favorite characters from the movie. When the show ended she went backstage to tour the theater and dressing rooms.

The fun came to an end on Sunday and after some final exploring, Natalie and her family headed back home. Natalie had a blast in the city and can’t wait to take the stage again soon!
