This year my school kids all auditioned and got parts in their school’s Missoula production, The Secret Garden.
Jubilee was a Canadian Goose.
Hezekiah was the cutest fox ever!
Avi was a shimmering firefly.
Tucker was part of the Secret Garden.
And Mordecai was a snail.
Missoula Children’s Theater is such a great program. The last three years my children have been involved in theater camps with them in the summer. Lucky for us, the little kids’ school hosted them this year so they all got to participate for free!
I was so happy and proud that they all chose to audition. They did such a great job.
Mordecai sang his songs on key and said his lines loud and clear. Jubilee overcame her shyness and did a great job. Hezekiah is a natural actor. I couldn’t believe how well he said his lines (even if he said them quietly). Avi fit right in and Tucker could be heard singing (but not shouting) above the crowd.
You would never have been able to pick out my two with “special needs” from the crowd. Chuck and I always imagined homeschooling our children with special needs. The reality is, I don’t know how or why, but these two perform much better for others that for me. As always, we are committed to doing what’s best for them, even if it doesn’t fit in our “vision”.
