Once Upon a Star

Post by LovelyLadyLux » Sun Jun 23, 2019 7:23 pm

The show last night was good. It was a Musical. This group is led by a Senior man who had a career somewhere professionally writing music and stage performances. Now that he has retired here he is still writing musicals and doing all else associated with producing them. It was the other Grandma who found this and took everybody to all the auditions.

When the twin auditioned apparently their part got "written in" as Jim & Tim who were Knights but basically comic relief over their names so anytime one was referred to as Tim they said their name was Jim & vice versa.

The music was good and each character sang their words to the melody of a song. If you know the theme song to the Game Show Jeopardy that was the music that was played each time the Twins appeared to do or say something although they were on stage the entire time. The daughter sewed many of the costumes.

The premise of the show was that the King needed a wife so rounded up all the village girls who each got turned into a Princess based upon her own talent. 'Course there was also an evil main Councilman (or the helper to the King) who plotted to kill the King.

I had a hard time taking photos but these are the "Village girls" who then turned into "Princesses"

As a children choir they had a blast singing and everybody had all the actions down with only a few forgetting their lines.

This young lad was the Jester and "wow" he was good. His personality and character shone through brightly. He was a relaxed natural up there in his role.

Ahh yes - Tim and Jim LOVED being in the play and being Knights. It was a twice a week effort for the past 4 months or so but it all came together well last evening.
