The Birth of a Thespian

Last night my oldest was in the drama production of The Princess and the Pauper. The ages of the kids ranged from around 10-14. They did an awesome job as did their teacher who is so amazing with the students.

Mackenna was one of the ladies of the court, Lady St. John, and even had lines to say. It was so cool to see her on stage, looking so poised. She was wonderful. Though I must admit, I'm totally biased.

Needless to say, she can't wait to do another play. She loves every minute of her drama class. Princess and the Pauper was our first "play" experience of this sort of magnitude and it was very fun. Though she and hubby didn't get home from Wednesday's dress rehearsal until after ten o'clock in the evening. But it was all worth it.

I've only been in one play, The Merchant of Venice, when I was in college. What about you? Have you ever acted in anything?
