The Children's Musical

It took an extra month, because of bad weather, but we finally had our Children's musical last night, and they did an awesome job. I was very proud of all the children and all the hard work they put into doing it. Of course, I was especially proud of the incredible Children's Minister who re-wrote, directed, and drove the whole thing to it's enjoyable finish. Donna was very pleased with how it all worked out. I know she had some doubts, awhile back, about seeing it come together, but believe me, I know, a lot of any play takes that last "crunch" of time to make it all gel. It was great and everyone loved it. The above picture is of the smaller children who sang a few songs for us prior to the play. They were so cute - especially when they signed a song.
This is the beginning of "A King Is Coming". You can see part of the sign to the left. The story was about the town of Rumor Mill and everyone speculating on who The King was.

This was the news reporters and the sheriffs talking about what they thought he was going to be.

This groups thought The King was the return of Elvis! Cute!

This group believed that The King was an exhibit of King Tut coming to town.

This interesting, and funny, group decided that The King was going to be King Kong.

The group of "Teens" who started the rumor explain that it was all about remembering Jesus at Christmas. It was a rather complicated play, especially for such a young group, but they did a wonderful job.

My little camera doesn't focus far away, but this is the Director wrapping up the evening. She had a great group of helps and I was very proud of how she organized and led the whole thing. We had an excellent crowd, and like I said to several people, the nice thing about kids on stage is - no matter what they do, it'll be cute and entertaining. That doesn't work for adults - unfortunately.
