Romeo & Juliet

So, while we are on the subject of theatrics, I thought I'd show you a few pictures from Logan's stage debut last Friday night.  Apparently, last weekend was the weekend for the arts between Logan and Raja both having acting debuts. 

This was Logan's first endeavor into acting and while he specifically declined any of the lead roles as he felt he wasn't ready for that, he did have 4 small parts in the play.

It was definitely a low budget production as well as a modern take on Shakespeare's work.  It lasted just about an hour and it was quite entertaining.  It was evident the kids had worked very hard.  They made the sets and were also clever in how they went about it as you'll see below. 

Logan was part of the Montague clan.  Hence, the blue headband.  The Capulet side wore red. 

A little sword play.

The Capulets.

A little dancing at the ball.

Don't you just love their take on a balcony?  Clever, isn't it?  This got a nice laugh and applause from the audience.  Those 3 girls supporting the ladder were the narrators of the play.  They told the story in modern day lingo and kept the play moving.  They were very animated and entertaining.

Some more dancing, this time to Michael Jackson's "Beat It" when Romeo is exiled.  This was pretty cool as they did a shortened version of the dance routine used in Michael Jackson's video for the song.

Romeo is in the leather jacket. 

Applause for the drama teachers as they were presented with flowers. 

It was a very enjoyable evening for all who attended.  We were so proud of all the kids who worked so long and hard on this play.   I can't wait for next year's production.

We had another event happen the next day but I'll write about that later as lunch is nearly over and I have to get back to work.  

Have a great day!!!
