And all the men and women merely players:
They have their exits and their entrances;
And one man in his time plays many parts,
I've spent July helping at our local playhouse and the children's workshops that have gone on there for at least 25 years. I spent many a night as a child, pretending to belong to the worlds of "Peter Pan", "Scrooge", and "Br'er Rabbit". It was great to help formulate those memories for the next generation of actors and stage lovers.
This is a shot from backstage during our dress rehersal... to avoid any upset parents, I don't want to post identifiable pictures but these little guys (k-5 through 2nd) worked hard that week and put on a great show. I had a blast... they couldn't sit still and I couldn't stop giggling. My small town has a little bit of culture mixed in with all the country and beautiful land.
