Today Will had rehearsal from 3:00 p.m to 7:00 p.m. It was a little shorter today. He should have gone to school...but he didn't. He was exhausted from yesterday. Since it was only a half day of school today, we kept him home. Art took him to the theater around 2:30 p.m. and picked him up at 7:00 p.m.
Mom: Was today better than yesterday?
Will: Well, it was shorter and I made friends, and we started doing "Food Glorious Food." We did the dance and it was really cool.
Mom: Tell me about it.
Will: First we walked around the table, then we stood next to the seats then we started singing. We had a bowl and a spoon in our hands. I sit next to the boy that plays Oliver. His name is Sam. I made friends with him. After we sang a little, we banged our bowls on the table. Then we sang again. We banged our hands on the table and then sat down. We some more too.
Mom: Was it fun?
Mom: Did you practice "Food, Glorious Food" all day?
Will: Yes, we didn't practice anything else.
Mom: Did you meet some of the kids today?
Will: Yes. One of them has brown hair that is a little bit long. I played a little bit with him.
Mom: What's his name?
Will: I don't know.
Mom: What did you do at lunch time?
Will: We didn't have lunch time today because the adults in the show already had lunch. They were practicing a lot longer than us.
Mom: Did you practice on the stage?
Will: No. We don't do it on the stage for two more weeks. We practice it in the room where we danced for the audition.
Mom: Was it still boring?
Mom: Do you want to go back tomorrow?
Will: Yep..oh, yeah, and we wrote in our scripts what the dance is going to be like. A boy named Justin let me use his highlighter. We put our scripts in a folder. I decorated it by drawing Monster Trucks. Sam helped me spell some words on my folder.
When Art picked him up today, Ms. Kate said that he had a good day. I was glad to hear that!!!
