I went to the dress rehearsal of Cade's play today and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is a cute play with an hilarious story line to it...it fits well the mindset of Jr High School - as an old time drama director there were definitely major staging problems that I would have changed or worked on but all that aside it was so much fun to see young people experiencing their first attempts at theatre. Cade did a good job (though I wanted to go up and turn up his mike) and it was so much fun to see a grandson acting in a school play.
I didn't realize until I was in college that drama was in my blood and I thoroughly enjoyed the two college courses I took down at the College of Southern Utah. Because of those classes I was able to work as a drama director on both ward and stake and region levels when Ed and I were first married. At least until Ed got tired of all the hours of practices and productions - I allowed his complaints to pull me from something I really loved and I regret it now.
But back to Cade's play - if you are looking for something fun to do either Friday or Saturday evening go see him play the bad guy in a cute production at Sunset Jr High School.
Way to go Cade - Grandma is proud of you. Have fun!!!
