Kids' Musical

On Thursday, we headed to the Civic Centre to watch the annual production that the school puts on. As a teacher and a parent, I can totally understand and appreciate the amount of work that goes into these plays. John the producer of each musical has an incredible talent for putting it together. He not only writes the musicals, but produces and directs the production, choosing music and rewriting their lyrics to be pertinent to the show! Sometimes the musicals have the entire school in them - about 400 kids!! This year, it was only the 6s, 7s and 1s. We took the little ones and had a family night out. It was great to all go together and see BillyJoe’s part in his final primary school musical. He didn’t have a major part, but was a dancer as part of a group. I encouraged him to audition for a part, but he was too shy. I’ve seen him dance, when he thinks no one is looking and I think he could do well. Not all parts were singing parts, so he could have auditioned for it. Because he is a ‘good’ kid, I know he would have been in contention anyway..... It was a nice family night. We got home late, the kids got to bed at about 10.30pm, Peter and I still had something to eat and then headed off to bed an hour later. I kept the kids home the next day. It was the last day of term,no need for them to go really......
