The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Jr.

The past few days have been very busy.  I have been a chaperone to Zachary's traveling road show with his theatre group The Chesapeake Youth Players.  The kids did an adaptation of the James Thurber short story The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (read the short story here: Walter Mitty).  We traveled to 4 different community center/school/library locations over the past two days for 5 shows throughout the county, not to mention the practice leading up to the past few days.  The show has been great.  The kids have been responsible for setting up the stage and taking care of their costumes before the show and tearing down the stage and packing up the cars after the show.

The adaptation takes place in a classroom with Walter Mitty, Jr daydreaming about various stories.

Harry Potter

Treasure Island

Robin Hood

Star Wars

I am so proud of all the kids and can't wait for their next show!

Now, time to get things back to normal.  I've been working on a project for Piper for the past week but with things being so busy it has been slow going.  Hopefully I will have a new dress to show you soon.
