James and the Giant Peach

Andrew and Emily have worked so hard, for months, on the production of James and the Giant Peach but not without excellent results! Emily is paying her dues, for future staring roles, as a town's person and other parts of the play that help to tell the story to the audience. She is naturally comfortable as she glides on and off doing her various jobs. Andrew is very believable as the distinguished old Grasshopper, realistically playing his violin and delivering his lines with perfect diction. He endears himself to the audience while keeping us calm with music through out the harrowing journey on the giant peach.

They have two more shows to perform (tonight and Saturday afternoon) and then they get some well deserved rest until try outs for the next theatrical production (like in a week!).

Break-a-leg guys!

P.S. The rest of the family are also loyal participants! Tom did the programs, Kim does nightly make-up and William sits through every show, loving it as if it were his first time. :)

P.S.S. Thanks to all the grands for keeping Grandad and my weekends filled with exciting games and plays to watch and hear about. You are nine times our daily pleasure!

Andrew was splendid as the Old Grasshopper who played a violin. I was really impressed with his realistic violin playing. His acting and technique was excellent, too.
Emily had various roles without lines, but she acted all of her parts very well. She was always in character and did a good job with her stagecraft. Good work in these roles will lead to bigger parts in the future. This was a fun show. I saw it twice! Grandad.
