Wizard of Oz

This summer, Jonny is honing in on some special skills....those of acting. It really seems to be his niche. We have searched for opportunities in the area that mesh with our schedule and challenge him to grow with his skills. Many we have tried, and we have been so pleasantly thrilled that he has gotten great instruction through many of them, and he continues to do well and loves it!This week he completed the Prairie Fire Children's Theater production of "The Wizard of Oz". Jonny played the part of the green guard at the gate of Oz. As usual, he played his role very well, and drew laughter from the crowd where appropriate. From auditions on Monday, to dress rehearsal and performance Friday of that same week, these kids have their acting on in full swing/high gear. The incredible thing is, each year, they pull it off!
This year was even better than last year, giving us a show that the little kids even wanted to see again the next day for the matinee performance. The kids did a great job (both as actors and audience), and everyone desrved the late night Dairy Queen treat after Friday Night's play. We are already looking forward to next year's production, whatever it may be.

For Jonny this summer: two theater camps down, two more to go!
And Happy 8 Week Birthday, Bethany!
