On With The Show!





Zoey has been in theatre camp for three weeks now. She has been exhausted and wanting more. She is so engaged by all of it. Especially interesting to her is the social scene. Being a homeschool kid her experience with this is limited to ski team and summer activities and chosen friends. This is a mixed age camp, so she even witnessed her first friend breaking up with a boyfriend. Her reaction has been very interesting.



Zoey's role in the Fabulous Fifties Fairy Tales was as Jill of "Jack and Jill Went Up the Hill." She was one of a pair of fast talking, sassy twins in the "Three Billy Goats Gruff." There was a great deal of chasing by the trolls. No wonder she was exhausted!







And the trolls totally rocked!

she looks so grown up- maybe it's the makeup.. but even without it- she looks more like a young woman than a girl...

Ah, the Theataaaaah......
Acting in productions like this one builds so much self-confidence.
Isn't it the biggest thrill to look at your daughters, the tiny babies you once held in your arms, are growing up to be kick-ass young women????
You can be so proud of them, Trixie.

How fun for Zoey! It looks like she's having a great time. The costumes and make-up are wonderful.

She does look grown up. Very confident, too! Social experiences and the surprises that come with them are so important.

Zoey will never forget this summer.

Congrats on your love of theater, Zoey. What a wonderful and creative interest to pursue. I do love to go see plays but I was never one for acting because of my fear of public speaking.

Your great uncle Bob was quite an actor in his youth in Dayton. His claim to fame is that he took over a roll from Martin Sheen when he went off to New York for bigger and better things. I have no idea what the play was, though.
