The Play

I've been wanting to do a post about the play Greg and Kylen got cast in at our city's local theater. The Baker Street Irregulars monopolized the first half of our summer, but Greg and Kylen had a BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Kylen was thrilled just to get a part with lots of lines after being accustomed to only one or two, but then they switched him to lead!!  And Greg had his first experience acting (since first grade!).  I was SO proud of him for trying something new and scary.  He became completely immersed in the production and enjoyed helping with props and making suggestions just as much as the acting itself.  He spent hours creating a hot dog cart, repairing a light post, and working on all sorts of projects.  He even wrote an addition to the end of the script for the last day that was very well received.

Their director was an incredible woman who made their first experience with this theater a wonderful one.

We had a fantastic outpouring of support from family and friends, selling around 40 tickets.  It was super fun for the boys to greet someone they knew at the end of every show.  Plus, they made a lot of new friends!

One of the actresses and her mom created the posters.  Aren't they neat?

The actress who made the posters is extremely talented.  Kylen had a hard time keeping a straight face when he was interacting with her on stage, because she was so dramatic and her facial expressions were hilarious.

We celebrated after opening show at Red Robin with good friends.  Lots of laughter and happy memories made.

Looking forward to next time!
