Emma played Miss Hannigan in her performing arts school, The SPACE's, production of Annie this weekend. This is outside of her arts high school and something she's been doing for 3 years (her debut role was as Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast). The kids range in age from 3 to 15 and the show has everyone in it (little ballet dancing orphans are the cutest!).
She was awesome.
She was really reluctant to take on a singing role--she had to sing Little Girls as a solo and the school worked with her and she wowed the audience. She was honoured with an award for Outstanding Achievement. I'm so proud of her.
There's a bunch of photos here if you want to see some great shots of the play taken by "Lily's" mom with her awesome telephoto lens.
Now we're just glad it's over. May was a month full of rehearsals for Annie and Emma's high school work in cello and dance.
Xander was part of the stage crew for his school's musical too just to up the difficulty of wrangling everyone. He's off being a Leader-in-Training right now and will graduate from grade 8 next week. I'm afraid that means one more mom-braggy-post is still to come.
