Drama In A Small Town

Last night was the Christmas program at school. And, yes, it was a CHRISTMAS program because we send the boys to a private Christian school. It was certainly an eye-opening experience. Here are a few things that stand out in my memory.

During one of the acts, which was a quartet that can best be described as "barbershop quartet" meets "the Supremes", Cassie who is only three and who was standing on the pew to get a better view from the back-row loudly announced "That sound hurts my ears!"

Another scene involved a student leaping from the balcony and plunging across the audiences heads onto the stage. Envision a broadway production of PeterPan. Apparently he's the student in charge of special-effects. As a senior he refused to do some of the more complex special-effects (which only he could pull off) unless they found a scene that would finally let him fly through the air. I understood why my sons had been telling me I had to find a "safe" seat because the student with the rope had taken out someone during the dress rehearsal. As it was, he came periously close to obliterating the Mennonite couple sitting on the opposite end of the row in front of me! Well, I'm assuming they were Menonite. They might have been Amish. Now, THAT would have been a dramatic moment!

The big finale was ... ambitious. Have you seen the finale for the BingCrosby movie "White Christmas"? Well, they duplicated it. I am SO not kidding. They even had indoor snow! And a disco ball. (I've told my husband I need a disco ball, but I'm not sure he believes that I really NEED one)

It was certainly an evening.


I LOVE White Christmas, that closing scene is great!!!

Hey, I saw disco balls at our local store the other day. Want me to smuggle you one?
