Willy Wonka

I signed Audrey up for a homeschool drama group in February.  The play for this session was Willy Wonka (one of my favorite childhood movies).  Audrey's dream role was an Oompa Loompa.  She got the part she wanted, plus she had a line as a reporter, and she was a Candy Kid.  She loved it!  She knew all of the choreography, and when the boy who was supposed to sing a duet with her was silent, she sang her line loudly.  For her reporter line she did great (we worked on talking loudly without yelling, and she was the best reporter...imho).

She had a best bud, Tanner, they were so glad to have each other.  

Poor little bud, he wanted to be an Oompa Loompa SO bad!  He thought that was the best role in the play (as did Audrey) and he is always singing the songs, and he asked about 100 times if he could be an Oompa Loompa.  He was a good supporting brother, and he was so proud of Audrey.  

Audrey really did do a fantastic job, she totally shined in every role that she had.  I hope to have her and Phoenix do a play in either the fall or next spring.  It was a great experience for her, and it was so cute and fun to watch the kids.
