Theater Camp!

Last year, LK did a week long summer camp at Theater Memphis. She loved it! As soon as it was over, she immediately asked to do it again. Ethan even asked to go. So, as soon as I got the email about it this year, I signed them up. They were both really excited about it!

This year’s theme was Shel Silverstein poems. They were split up into groups and each group had different poems that they had to learn by weeks end. Each child ended up with 2-3 poems each. They have to participate in every aspect of putting on a stage production. Sets, painting, sound, scripts, parts.. everything! LK was cast in 3 poems and E was cast in one poem and one song. We were all so excited to see the final production on Friday.

There was one song in the entire production. It was a Johnny Cash song. “Boa Constrictor”. Shel Silverstein wrote the poem and Johnny Cash recorded it. And, if you know anything at all about our family, you know that LK and E are HUGE JC fans! When Ethan came home on Monday with his scripts to learn, we discovered that he was cast as what else.. Johnny Cash! He was beyond excited!! LK was beyond jealous!:)
