Our Drama Queen

We were VERY excited to see Manga Dork in the play "Life of Man" last Friday. Cousins Kayla and Beth were still visiting. When I took this picture of our gang, {can you see Dr. Hubby trying to pretend he doesn't know us?} I became a little concerned the kids were too rowdy to sit still.

Manga Dork was a "neighbor." {Plaid shirt & black skirt}

The play was so b.o.r.i.n.g. we had to entertain ourselves.

Manga Dork was an old woman walking around some "drunks." I think...I didn't really understand the play.

We thoroughly enjoyed the 5 minutes of the play that Manga Dork was in. At this point I was REALLY hoping the next play {Saturday night} was MUCH better.

Manga Dork was Gwendolyn in "The Importance of Being Earnest." She was a perfect little flirt. We loved it.

In Act II, her flirty sassiness was amusing when her and "Cecily" figure out they are both engaged to Earnest.

At intermission I looked over at my MIL and saw this...

And Dr. Hubby was holding a very sound asleep Wild Child too.
I decided to take them home and come back next Saturday to see the rest of the play. What! You mean I get the chance to sit in the audience and enjoy it KID-FREE! Sold! lol
Dr. Hubby and the cousins said the rest of the play was even better than the first part. I am such a proud momma. Manga Dork put in alot of hours and they definitely paid off.
Brava!

Good for her! Sometimes, those plays can be painful.

Yes, I am dreading school plays--my oldest is such a ham I just know he's going to want to join the drama club!

The Importance of Being Ernest is a fun play. My daughter-in-law played Gwendolen in her College's production. We went to see it and it was great.

Yay!! Those are the things I miss now that my kids are grown. Can't wait until the GRAND's start doing things like that. More power to her!

I'm sure they are better in the scene(s) your child is in. My parents had to sit through band concerts which I'm sure were not fun.

How fun! This is when I wish I had girls. It seems like girls are more into performing in plays and dance recitals, etc. I miss that!
