We had another great season of theatre camps. The kids love choosing their costumes, and helping with prop and set decorations. It’s a rush to learn their parts in one week.
My youngest did Stone Soup. He was so cute, and worked so hard on the songs. The excitement is on once their costumes are donned and they are warming up.
Everyone gets excited as the kids walk backstage.
You never know how the kids will do in the actual performance. My little guy sang every song, and we could even hear his husky little voice! He even helped out when kids didn’t sing their parts.
Time for the bow.
My little villager.
Right back in the green room for the older boys to prep for their show, Through the Woods. Love my colorful frog and mighty oak.
He had us all worried he wouldn’t say his line, but he totally did.
I had no idea the frogs would be the center of the show. In fact, the show is about them. The fine print at the end of their script says the play’s original name is Green Frog Tale.
The art director was really impressed with his artwork. I never did get to see his praying mantis.
“We’re always going to be green, to remind everyone that jealousy never pays.”
They performed two shows. Here are a few snaps from the second performance.
“We’re never sprouting flowers.”
“Hey, Old Storyteller! You forgot about us!”
The bows are just so cute.
Rehearsals are a handful, and the day of performance you just live at the theatre, cramming in food between constant costume changes, and you ask yourself if it’s all worth it. And then it always is. We are so proud of our guys!
