School Drama

We went to see the elementary school’s production of Willy Wonka the other night, and it was a lot of fun. A&N had a blast because they got to see all their buddies and there were lots of sweets to be had at the intermission, though you could tell they were not made from scratch. Either way, it was a lot of fun, and nice to see the kids working so hard at something.

JB, the director and music teacher, does such an amazing job, and that show was quite a production. Hats off to her and her crew, and of course, the kids. Next up is A’s production, which will kick into full swing in the coming weeks now that the bigger kid’s production is done. This, of course, will include parental assistance, so R and I need to be prepared to get our hands dirty.

A is excited about it all, and it should be fun, though mom and dad will be a wreck watching their child perform on stage, especially since she has a reasonably substantial role (she’s playing Mozart). Of course, she’s completely unfazed about being onstage, which is a great thing to see. We love watching her, it’s just that we tend to project our own personal neurosis and anxiety onto every situation while she’s as cool as a cucumber in front of an audience. It’s really great to see.

Anyway, onto the next production. Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to Premek V for the pic.
