Made for the Stage

Last week Char had Art and Drama Camp at Plano Children's Theater. This was the first time she ever did any sort of acting camp or performance, but I knew she'd be great. And she was! She had a great time at camp, and we were so proud of what a star she was on stage!
 
The theme for the week was Wizard of Oz and each participant got to choose which character they would portray. The kids actually wrote the script themselves, so they got to decide how much they were in the play. Because of that, the story wasn't exactly the same, but very similar. Charlotte chose Glinda the Good Witch and the Tin Man. Glinda was only in the play for one or two scenes and the pictures I had didn't turn out, but Tin Man was in it a ton with a lot of lines. She wore her flower girl dress from Aunt Courtney's wedding (it was a little snug!) with a tiara for Glinda and this cute grey dress with teal/aqua rhinestones for Tin Man...

Here she says, "Help me" and they call one of the munchkins to come oil her (see, the script is a little different)...

Here, they are cowering before the lion...

And here I think the Tin Man and Lion are asking the munchkin to take them to the Wicked Witch to save Dorothy (Char is the one that saved her:))...

I had to clip the video because it was too long to save, but here's a short part of the play...

Taking a bow...
(Notice she put her tiara back on for the finale. That girl loves to be a princess!)

Here, Char is introducing herself and telling how many shows she's been in (this was her first)...


They also learned a little dance and performed it after the play...





I was so proud of her! She projected so well and knew all of her lines (one of the only ones!), and she had a lot of them! She's definitely a natural...
She's already asked several times about her new friends Logan (the scarecrow) and Ella (the lion), so hopefully we can find a way to see them again some day!
