Enchanted Sleeping Beauty - Laura's Play

AFYT, the group that does the summer plays, did a play just for 3rd - 6th graders. Laura got the great role of the "Orange Fairy" in the production! She was so much fun to watch as she was onstage so often and said quite a few lines. It was also great to hear her sing - even a little solo.
We all loved seeing this play! It was just the right length - an hour - and a familiar story! So many friends and family came to support her. The whole experience was wonderful!!
She made lots of friends and the fairies were the hit of the production. Laura signed autographs, hugged kids, and took pictures just like she was a character at Disney. It was a great experience!
In other news, we were crazy to do two plays at once! Also, costuming for kids this small was epic - we had to make almost everything. I put in so many hours! But, it turned out so beautiful and to be such an amazing experience that I would do it all over again. I'm sure we will next year!
A big "Thank You" to everyone who came to support her in her plays! She (and me) felt so loved by all the support!! Oh, and the girls all got skirts like I made for the ensemble, so they did benefit from some of my hours behind the machine. Please excuse the phone photos.
