The boys were reluctant (to put it mildly) at first, and now they both want to be in her future plays. It was too unorganized for my taste but I was just glad to have a free learning opportunity which for homeschoolers is awesome! I mean, I paid for a theatre class for D when he was four that wasn't near as awesome as this free opportunity.
The play was about Vikings and Hobbits and Mermaids and Fairys- I had a hard time figuring it all out, but the boys had to memorize lines, speak loudly, dance, sing, change costumes, and enjoyed playing with all the other kids in between, and even got a t-shirt with their names, a button, and cd with the music as souvenirs. They were also well fed. Who could ask for anything more?
|Getting ready for the first performance. It was located at our towns zoo.|
|D as Frodo. S as a townsperson. They're performing the song 'There's No Time Like the Dark Ages'.|
|S as the guard for the king of England. He was also a soldier from Scotland at one point and that costume looked awesome on him, but I didn't get a picture of it.|
|D ad S as kings guard.|
Pat understood the play better and after he explained it, it was quite funny. All the kids had trouble talking too quietly so I missed a lot. But hopefully they'll get better as they grow. Maybe. Maybe not.
