"Honk" if You Like Children's Theatre!

Honk,  Honk,  Honk
We don't just like children's theatre,
we love children's theatre!

We've loved it even more recently because Miss M participated in a two-week
theatre camp at our local community playhouse!
The camp workshop was for two weeks from 9 am to 4 pm
every day!
That made for a bit of a long day some days!
But . . .
Maddy had such a good time.
And with only 2 weeks to work on it, the group put on a
 full 1 hour and 20 minute performance complete with songs and dances --
 what an amazing accomplishment!
Honk Jr. was basically the Ugly Ducking story.

What a wonderful group of teachers and classmates ranging in age
 from 8 or 9 to 15 or 16!
The older students were so sweet and helpful to the newbies!
At a time when you often hear about how snotty or mean or rude
 teens can be to each other and/or to younger kids,
these campers dispelled that myth!
They were all so positive and enthusiastic and friendly!


Maddy did a wonderful job with the group songs and
 dances and mastered her line consisting of 4 words:
"The Ball Went Inside!!"
It was one of the best experiences of her summer. 
 She even said she enjoyed it more than Zoo Camp and that's saying a lot!
She's now signed up for Theatre 101 on Saturdays in September. 
 My girl, who is generally thought of as pretty quiet,
is really spreading her wings and "honking!"  :)
