The wicked stepmother and stepsisters, and the king, react to the fact that Cinderella fits the sneaker (hey, it's a low budget production.)
Today was the production of Cinderella. As with the other four Kids in the Park productions that Pippi has been in, it was a lot of fun - for the cast and the audience. When the "Fairy Godfather" came in to the tune of (naturally) "The Godfather" there were lots of laughs. Trust these people to put a unique spin on things!
The weather forecast had been for rain. It didn't. Not until 6:45 tonight (how do I know the time, you ask - because that is the time we were leaving for 7pm Mass). But it was dry for the show. The cast performed with energy and excitement to an appreciative audience.
Pippi is sorry that this is her last production as a cast member (it's only for 8 to 11 year olds) but next year while Harry is in the show, she can be a helper and be involved that way. So the fun will continue.
And in parting and as a tribute to poetry Friday - which I haven't participated in all summer I give you:
The Kids in the Park Theme Song for 2008
(sung to "consider yourself")
by Gary Charwin
The Kids in the Park are here
The Kids in the Park ready to entertain
We've practiced our parts so well
It's clear we're going to be just swell!
The Kids in the Park are great!
The Kids in the Park all set to perform for you
So see that you're set to smile.
Sit back and let us perform a while!
Cinder-ella wants a fella she can call her own
But the Prince will have to do
Her Step-Mother and her daughters treat her bad at home
Till those magic words come through....
Bibbity Bobbity Boo!
So now it is time to start!
Remember before we part
We love you and we'll do our best
So HERE WE GO!
The Kids in the Park - Put on a show!
