For three months Isaiah has been going to play practice once a week. Every Wednesday after school he has been learning songs and rehearsing his part in the musical production of Hansel and Gretel. His part, along with all of the other Kindergarten and first graders was that of the stepmothers servant
. While his part was small he was on stage often singing and doing little dances. He even had a speaking part that he was able to say into the microphone. So cute! The play itself was a little all over the place...it combined the story of Hansel and Gretel with many other fairy tale characters and even though the main characters were wearing microphones, they were poor quality and the audience only heard about 50% of what was being said. Well that
and the fact that a lot of the lines were forgotten. : ) That being said, it was an elementary school play not Broadway so my expectations were met and even exceeded at times. Isaiah had a lot of fun and we were glad that he was able to have this experience.
I caught Isaiah peeking out from behind the stage curtain...the little rebel. I was actually glad because I love this shot!
So lets talk about this costume. First of all, I had no idea that he was supposed to wear white...oh well, the blue did make him stand out more. In addition, I love that Isaiah couldn't be bothered to take off his jeans, or even his slip-on shoes for that matter...
Then again, it could have been worse. This little girl (er...boy??) seems to have spilled her (his?) drink down her (his?) shirt. On second thought, Isaiah's shirt is equally dirty so maybe it is
worse!? Ehhh, what are you gonna do?
and dancin'.On a photography note...once again, I didn't have a tripod and the auditorium was dark so the lighting wasn't ideal. I caught a couple cute pictures but majority of them were blurry. Argghh, this is becoming very frustrating to me. I'm wondering if I need to upgrade my lens or my camera (the Canon Rebel XTi for those of you who have been wondering) or both. Maybe I just need a tripod. I don't know but I still trying to learn how to use this camera and I'm doing it by using the manual settings only so bear with me. In this case, I finally gave up and took these pictures on auto with a flash and they turned out less than thrilling.
