We went to Emily's play last night, and I was honestly very impressed. When I was in middle school our musicals consisted of bleachers on a stage that we all stood on, as we fumbled through our designated lines. We all tried to sing as quiet as possible so no one would know we had not memorized our song. Emily's musical was full of lights, great props, and amazing singers. The long hours of practice has paid off, and I am very proud of the entire crew. I am going again tonight, and I am looking forward to it.
Another wonderful thing that happened last night is Jude's reaction to the show. At first he was a bit whiney, but he just wanted out of his chair. I started hearing "uhhhhhhhhhh, uhhhhhhhhhhh!!". So I got him up, and soon he was pretty content. As soon as the "bird girls" came on the stage, which was Emily's group, he started laughing. He laughed, and laughed until everyone around us was laughing at him! He loved the show!! This was so encouraging to us.
Here are some pictures from last night. Remember that all the kids are in full stage make up. It is a regular theatrical stage with full stage lights. I couldn't take pictures of the actual play because it's copyrighted. They are suppose to give us some pictures on Cd, and I will share them then.
