Every year my children's elementary school puts on wonderful plays and musicals. This year they are doing Alice and Wonderland. The musical was open to any 4th and 5th graders who wanted to particpate, with a few lottery slots for 3rd graders. It is a very popular activity at our school with lots of interest from both boys and girls. JJW is in 5th grade and this is his last year at our wonderful elementary school. He has participated before in the plays/musicals as part of the chorus, but has never tried out for a part. Well this year he tried out for a speaking role. Yesterday he found out that he was cast as the King of Hearts! I am so proud of him for trying out, something not completely in his comfort zone. I know he will enjoy it.
So, JJW, we can't wait to see you in the musical. Break a leg!
