Saturday night, there was a Nikki & Babs reunion of sorts.
If you’ve listened to our podcasts, you know we’re a big fan of Matt Maher. He had a concert at the local St. Jude’s Catholic Cathedral in St. Petersburg, Florida this past Saturday. The church was overflowing. People came from all over the state to pack the church, including a lot of the Nikki & Babs cast and crew.
Along with Dorothea Bauer, and Sonlight Pictures founders Pete and Dea Bauer, many others showed up for the event. Tiffany Ross, who plays Babs, came down from college with Catherine Szeltner, who played Ariel in Episode 4 and Mary McCook, who was a competing hummer in Episode 3 and also a great hand behind the scenes. Also in attendance were Cathy Ross, Tiffany’s mother, who plays Jean in the series, as well as a number of old youth group members who played bit parts in the first season.
It was so nice to see everyone again. It was as if no time had passed since we completed the first season of the show.
The evening was very enjoyable. Matt Maher and his band did a tremendous job performing and ministering to the youth. His play list was heavy with songs from his latest CD called Alive Again and his encore had everyone singing loud and praising Jesus.
Though they had met Matt before at a prior concert, Dorothea and Tiffany were still extremely excited to meet Matt again and have their picture taken, as you can see below…
Overall, it was a wonderful evening of faith, music and friendship. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday night!
