This year I decided to do a Christmas camp with a Christmas theme play at the end of it.
And when all the children demanded more than 15 lines of dialog each, I realised I had to write the play myself and we called it..
“The North Pole Shenanigans”
In just 3 days the children learned 38 pages of dialog and went on the stage and OWNED it. They enjoyed the entire process and more than that, the dedication and determination they showed me had me seriosuly impressed.
We made lots of the props and hardly spent any money on costumes, so anyone who tells you that we need lots of monies to put up a production- it’s really not true.
The play was quite hilarious ( if I can say so myself) and the parents were in splits. We even had a character faint before cue and then realise his mistake and faint again later. That is the fun of working with kids, they are so adaptable and very rarely succumb under pressure.
My little Zayne and Zoey absolutely love to be a part of these plays and he was Mc Frosty the Snowman and she was Cinnamon the Elf. Needless to say they forgot their parts!
As if I’d expect anything else.
