My Lil' Thespian

BJ had his opening for the school play this weekend, and he did a great job! He remembered his one line, sang through both the songs, and even did pretty good remembering both dance numbers. I was so impressed!

He was one of the village children in Beauty and the Beast, a small part and about perfect for him. Here he is backstage before the dress rehearsal last week:

They have many folks taking pics during the performances and we've purchased one of the picture CDs, so I didn't worry too much about getting pictures. Especially since the best my camera would do in the dark was this, from the dress rehearsal:
Here he is backstage before his First Real Performance. A little nervous but nothing too bad.

Afterwards, I couldn't resist giving him some flowers purchased from the flower table at the show -- I picked out a yellow Gerbera daisy and two carnations. At least it matched his shirt!

He has two more shows this coming weekend, and one rehearsal during the week. It's been a very busy lead up to the show, but I think it's been worth it. BJ seems to have had a lot of fun, at any rate. And he's taught his dance numbers to his sister, which is pretty danged cute!

We have family tickets for the last performance, which will be on Sunday. Really looking forward to it!
