The theatre

Brennan and Payton were in their first "real" play last night. Have you heard of Missoula Children's Theatre? It's a group from Missoula, Montana who travel to all 50 U.S. states and 20 countries every year to work with children from one school for a week and then put on 2 performances of the play they have been working on. Somebody must have pulled some strings because they came for the first time to the Caribbean to work with our children at RUSVM Preparatory School. It was a great experience for the children and they all did a wonderful job. It was so interesting to see some of the quiet kids at the school play a huge role and take it on, singing and dancing, just like a professional (in my non-professional opinion.) Of course Brennan was the best "country folk" and Payton was the best "barnyard critter" in the performance of "Beauty Lou & the Country Beast." :)

Here's what Brennan will look like in 15 years (or less? really?) with a mustache.

Payton must have done something to the boy next to her. This poor little guy was crying pretty much the entire show. So much for fostering self-confidence through theatre.

oh I love MCT! The girls had a blast doing it and Morgan can't wait for it to come this year since she's older and has the confidence to get in front of people. Looks like everyone had a great time! I would love to see Brennan's moves...looks like he did some fantastic dancing steps :)
