Both Kjersten and Rhys were able to participate in our homeschool co-op's Missoula Children's Theater production of Cinderella. Oh, they loved it!

The week begins with auditions on Monday morning. The kids practice all week long and, by Friday night, have a fantastic show complete with songs and dancing. Kjersten was cast as a pumpkin~ the very cutest pumpkin ever! Rhys was a lord (as in "lords and ladies"). I was truly impressed with both of their performances. Kjersten's because she tends to be very timid in unfamiliar surroundings. Standing on stage in front of hundreds of strangers is, by it's nature, very unfamiliar. She did beautifully! Rhys' because he had to dance with a girl! He did well with his lines and he danced very confidently.

Fortunately, we have a video of the production so we can relive the entire thing over and over and over...

The cast.

Nice mustache, Rhys!

She did enjoy it, I promise! But I was worried that this would be her demeanor throughout the play. Nope! Just caught her looking contemplative!

That's more like it!

Next year's play (yes... we're already signed up!) is Snow White. Rhys' comment? "I don't want to do another princess play!" Oh well...

Kjersten is the cutest pumpkin I've ever seen! And Rhys looks awesome. What a fun thing to do.

It was a VERY cute play. I think we have already done Snow White before, but it will still be fun since my kids that are still at home would have been much younger the last time we did it.
I just did some smilebox pages from the play and am hoping to upload them to my blog sometime later today.
