'Naughty' by the adorable Matilda Shapland 16/09/14. If I'm not mistaken her 3rd show.
nobody but me is gonna change my story!
Happy trails to the wonderful “Newtildas”!
These girls were the Matildas that were on broadway when I first got into the fandom, so while I may have gotten into the fandom with Bailey/Hayley, these girls kept me in it! I’m so glad to have gotten to watch them grow as performers, and I hope I get to hear more from them in the future!
Today in my drama class in school, I was walking by the teacher’s desk to put my book in the box. I over heard her singing apart of Naughty! So as I put my book away I said, that’s from Matilda. it turns out she saw the show on Saturday. Pretending I was a casual fan, I…
Yes! Thanks because I was just going off what she said thank you. I’m now really jealous that my drama teacher got to see Lollie!
Today marks the graduation of the final “Newtildas”. Gabbylicious, you are simply Devine. Your kind spirit and depth of character have no doubt touched everybody who has been lucky enough to see you perform. I know I feel lucky that “we found each other”. Love you little one. #HappyTrails #onceamaggotalwaysamaggot
