My younger son participated in a theatre camp this summer and these pictures are from the performance they did at the end of the week-long session. It was called Mother Goose Retires...a story about the election of her successor once she retires to the Bahamas. The cast was made up of many of the typical Nursery Rhyme characters...such as Little Bo Peep, Jack & Jill, Nat King Cole, The 5 Little Piggies, etc. My little guy had the part of Little Tommy Tucker. He looks less than thrilled in the photo above...but, that was taken during a duet and he was super nervous about that part! Once he got through it he was so proud of himself.
I know that it's common to bring flowers for performers after a performance. But, I didn't think he'd be all that into getting flowers. So, I brought him a gift bag full of chocolates and a balloon.
I was so proud of him and got choked up at many points during the show. It was pretty much the cutest thing ever and I hope he wants to do another course again soon!
