The Sun’ll Come Out Tomorrow
Summer 2016 Challenge: Day 4
I really look forward to watching Roy B. Kelley’s 3rd & 4th grade production each year. This year they put on a terrific performance of Annie Kids and they didn’t disappoint! You can see the past two musicals HERE & HERE. This also happens to be my niece Jordan’s last year in the play, and Shawn has another year to go before he can participate. I sure hope he changes his mind because as of right now, he has no interest in doing it. 🙁
Jordan decided this year that she wanted more of a role, so she tried out for one of Daddy Warbuck’s servants and she got the part. She had just a couple speaking roles and did a terrific job! If you haven’t noticed, I love this kid like she’s my own and I am definitely one proud Aunt.
I say this each year, but it needs to be repeated. These kids do such an amazing job with the acting, singing, and dancing. It’s hard to believe that these are 9 &10 year olds! I give tons of credit to the teachers for all the hard work with the kids, costumes, sets, etc. There is a lot of dedication to this play and it really shows.
They use the stage at the Palace Theater for this production and the place is always packed with family and friends. The kids all go on a field trip during the day to watch the early performance and during the intermission the teachers all got up on the stage and had a flash mob. The kids didn’t know this was going to happen and they all danced to “It’s a Hard Knock Life” and the entire place was in an uproar. Even the principal was on the stage dancing.
