The girls are in drama class and just before Xmas they had a performance at the Old Mutual Theatre on Nelson Mandela Square here in Joburg.
They practiced every Saturday from September till December. The play was a Xmas version of the Wizard of Oz and Jasmine was Elf Curly Locks and Juliet was the Grumbly Witch.
So here a picture all dressed up ready to go for the big recital in a real theatre, a bit nervous but already in their role!
On the square a big statue of Nelson Mandela. (picture from my friend Tony Russell)
And a Xmas Baobab tree, so nice!
We all had to take care of our own clothes, you either rent them or make them... I made Jasmine's outfit, the Witch outfit she still had from Halloween a few years back...
I especially loved the snowman outfit, such a cute outfit, great idea for Halloween! Later in the story he even got a black hat to complete the outfit.
Jasmine was a bit shy in her performance, but she knew all her words :-)
Juliet was a bit more outspoken and really projected her words clear and loud, so cute. Here she crumbles down after she got splashed with water.
Some of the kids waiting for their certificate.
Although they really liked the action and the performance on stage, they don't want to do it again next season. Too bad really!
What is it with these kids, 1 season they do something, try it out, and then they don't want to do it anymore... not sticking to anything!!
At the moment they are playing/learning golf, but that also is not something they want to pursue further....
I was so different as a child, I did my gymnastics for years and LOVED it, the girls haven't found anything that tickles their fancy. Is that the same with your kids I wonder??
TGIF ~ Enjoy the weekend!
