The second and final show of the year is over. The show was a success.
How do I know?
*It met the principal's requests: a lot of students involved and a fun show for the audience to watch.
*Some students who weren't/have never been involved in drama productions told me after the show that they thought they would audition next year. (Score!)
*The cast included kids from all of these activities: drama, forensics, music, football, basketball, wrestling, baseball, tennis, FFA, FCCLA, AFS, Cheer, Dance, 4-H, and about a zillion others. These are busy kids! (That partially explains why we only had 3 regular practices with everyone in attendance.)
*The slapping, kissing, punching, sets falling, gunshots, hoop skirts, flirting, and craziness appealed to teenagers as well as adults.
*The kids got a lot of kudos from family and friends.
State testing at the beginning of the week, the show at the end of the week, and the clock change??? I guess if we cram it all into one week, the rest of the year should be smooth sailing!
