Needless to say, the kids did a stand-up job on their show, Compose Yourself. It was a lot of fun, and hats off to JB for the hard work she did, it really showed. The kids were great, and I'm not just saying that because I'm a shameless parent. They really did a nice job, projecting their voices, delivering their lines, and singing their songs. Plus, the script was clever and funny.
It's nice to see kids getting up their, getting over their anxieties, and performing so well. I think there are important lessons to be learned in appreciating the arts, but also taking some chances, putting yourself out there, and understanding the risks and rewards. Things don't always go as you plan them, but when they do, a kid can sure hit a home run.
A was a little bummed that the show was over, she loved it so much, but there are always other avenues for her to strut her stuff, it just takes a lot of searching, legwork, and even participation on the part of dad. I'm happy to do it if she's happy to take part.
Until then, thanks for reading.
