Christmas Show

Like most towns around here, we have an annual Christmas show that rocks, thanks to the volunteer efforts of the residents. They have music and carols sung by the amazing local choir, and all in all, it’s a nice show. I have heard, however, grumblings of discontent in various arenas, including the performers not being happy about the oversight (too dictatorial) and the community not appreciating certain aspects of the show. I can understand the former, but the latter part I find surprising considering that the show is free, and the performers are all volunteering their time. Sometimes people just need to complain.

This year, things are going to be different. They are going to make it more of a show rather than just a choir performance, and they want to include more of the community. It should actually be a great show, they do an amazing job when they set their minds to it, and they always set their minds to it. Kids are going to be more involved in the overall show rather than just having their own choir, so it could very well be like a regular community theater gig. Should be good.

A&N have both expressed interest in being involved, A on stage and N behind the scenes. I think N would be great on stage, he is good, he just doesn’t like the idea of it, at least until it happens. Then he seems to have fun, but we won’t force the issue.

We’ll see where this one goes. One thing for sure, if the kids are involved, it means that I’m going to be busy this holiday season. Prepare yourself for the ride.

Until then, thanks for reading, and thanks to mlamprou for the pic.
