Laura's Macbeth at Echo

Laura got the distinct honor of being cast as the Third Witch and Macduff's Child in Shakespeare's Macbeth at the Echo in Provo.  This was quite the experience for her as it was her first time doing Shakespeare, the first time as the only child in a play, and the first time acting not in a musical.  She rose to the occasion!

She made wonderful friends, learned so much and had an amazing experience.  She is so blessed to get to associate with such amazingly talented, sweet, and fun people. Here's her cast picture.  Clockwise from Laura:  Esther, Mandy, Amos, Brynn, Josh, Mallory, Ben, Joel, Jacob, and Laura.
It was a long run and we got very good at driving her.  We only took her sisters to see her twice since it was very disturbing to see her be murdered onstage and rather hard for a 5 and 7 year old to follow Shakespearean English.  Thank you to everyone else who came and supported her!
She got the chance to be reviewed in this play.  You can read them HERE and HERE.  But, if they ever go away, the parts that mention Laura are as follows:
"Finally, Laura Randall—the youngest cast member—had a performance beyond her years as the third witch, and her disturbing physicality removed any doubts I had about casting a child in such a large role." 
"I have to applaud Randall who, being the youngest of the cast, tackled a very heavy role and did so beautifully. There was something truly disturbing about her innocently creepy portrayal of the littlest witch that gives you the chills."
 Here are some pictures I took at the play.
