Dude, Where’s My Book?

Posted on April 25, 2010. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , |

Jackson’s play came to a close last night.  The school did an amazing job at pulling this production  together:  teachers wrote it, fashion classes made costumes, food club provided refreshments, band  played the music, students worked on building sets, the list goes on…  The program focused on the joy  of reading.  It takes eight students through seven stories to show them how they can connect to books.  The following stories were included: Wizard of Oz, The Lord of the Rings, Guinness Book of World  Records, Diary of Anne Frank, Dr. Seuss, Love You Forever, and The Three Little Pigs.

While watching the play opening night I was reminded of a show I watched  honoring Tom Hanks. When referring to Forrest Gump, he said that reading  through the script you had no idea what the movie was about: Vietnam,  desegregation, shrimping, ping pong, Watergate, Elvis, chocolate… you get the idea.

The play had orcs, munchkins, a wicked witch, clowns, dogs, Joe Jonas, the Holocaust, pigs,  stopped up toilets (and I did get splashed by the toilet water), a cat with a large red and white hat,  a  guy riding a unicycle,  and so much more. With over 400 people involved it was a huge effort to  pull  it off and they did very well.

So what was Jackson’s role in all of this?  He was a munchkin – one of the tallest munchkins to be exact.  He did great and kept the demented munchkin look the whole time.  I know he had a great time even with all the after school rehearsals.  He has a few days rest and then his next endeavor gets started — rugby!

Great job on the blog. And you’re right – the play was amazing.

Thanks, Dawn, for the notification of the new website. I am going to get my name on the list for future notifications.

The boys are growing too fast. I am so glad that Jackson is acclimating to Canada and his new school so quickly. Zachary is no longer a baby!

I love you and miss you all
Ms. Dixie
