Tonight, Caleb and Abby performed in their first official musical. Theater was an important part of my life growing up, and Matt and I still really love going to see shows. I love being able to share this with my kids now!
Caleb was thrilled to have a great speaking part in the play. His character is a Star Wars lover who turns every line into something from one of the movies....type casting?!?! He has worked so hard and did a really great job!
Abby was one of the little angels and did a great job singing and sparkling on stage. She learned every line and every word to every song (thanks to having the entire musical on CD so that Caleb could practice with it!), so it was pretty cute to watch her mouthing the lines along with the different characters. When she wasn't on stage, she was quietly cheering Caleb on and proclaiming that her brother was doing a great job!
My boy was a bit glum after the show was over because he wanted to do it again! He said he loved bonding with the cast and really had a great time. The 7 leads spent a lot of time together running lines, and I think he really enjoyed being a part of a "team"! I told him that I was always sad after a show was over, no matter how many times I did it.
Thank you to all of you who came to see the kids perform! They loved that you were all there!
I will share pictures when I get them. I was helping with 4s and 5s and my 3rd and 4th grade class, so there was too much going on for me to take pictures! My sister took lots, so I'll post them soon.
