Madelyn and Theodore took part again this year in the local children's theatre workshop. The play was "A Year with Frog and Toad". Madelyn landed the role as "Frog" and Theodore the role of "Snail 1".
This play was a lot different from last year's play. This year it was a two week long workshop instead of just one. They also didn't do costumes. Instead, each child received a T-shirt with their character's name on the back. The scenery was a little more involved this year. I think that is because they had more older kids and behind the scenes help. Another difference was that we had a first time director. I think he underestimated how long it takes for young kids to understand the choreography and scene blocking.
I was very impressed at how well it all came together. All their hard work payed off. They practiced their lines day and night, and we sang along with the CD every chance we were in the van. I think we all have the songs from the play stuck in our heads, especially the one called "Eating Cookies".
