Recently, my middle daughter auditioned for a role in her elementary school play of Blackbeard the Pirate thru Missoula Children's Theater. She has been on stage before with ballet but never in a speaking role. I was excited and nervous FOR her cause I really did not know what to expect by way of how she would react if she didn't get a part.
I'm happy to say, she DID get a part! She, along with roughly 14 other first graders, got the part of a parrots. BWACK!!! She only had a few lines, nothing major, but it was a good experience for her and she did beautifully.
A long week of rehearsals & two shows on Saturday and she was happy it was over, but loved every minute of it.
She's already asked if she can audition for NEXT year's play?
PS: Someone please send me a good digital camera and teach me HOW to take pictures in a poorly lit auditorium with no flash! :) Thank-you in advance!
