On Saturday Kate and Julia performed in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The musical no doubt.
Julia was Ms. Teevee and Kate was a child/cook.
They were wonderful. Jeff and I were glowing, proud parents.
When Kate asked Nora what her favorite part was, she said, "you and Juey-la(Julia)"
Hey, that was my favorite part too!
We are goofy and dramatic in our family, so school plays just seem an extension of that.
I was really proud of Kate, because after playing Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, she didn't get a part in the school play the next year when we moved to Maple Valley. It shook her confidence for a while. But she went for it again this year and had a great time.
And Julia had a hilarious scene where she laments the fact that her son Mike is now only 6 inches tall.
I have some fun picture of the girls and the cast mates after the show, but my regular lens that I normally use made everything show up fuzzy. So I had to switch back to my zoom lens. Melissa Dillon-any thoughts as to why? Or where I can get it repaired? Thanks.
So here is a slew of pictures for you. It was so fun. And if you happen to be in Maple Valley this coming weekend, come check out their next two performances!
Oh, and I took a picture with the gates so that you could see Jeff's handiwork in action. And I did Julia's hair.
Do we have a future as a family in the theatre? Perhaps.
