A few weeks ago, the Senior Primary (grades 4-8) at the kid's school put on an amazing production of Aladdin Trouble. It was the story of Aladdin but with an African flair to it. Joshua was one of the suitors trying to win the heart of Princess Jasmine. He was an American football player. I'm not sure whose bright idea that was to make the American kid play the role of a sports player for a sport that doesn't exist here. You can't find anything related to American football. However, that quick trip I made to the states paid off. I picked up a pair of $5 baseball pants (no one knew the difference) and a Cowboys football jersey. One of the kids in his school just happened to have lived in the states for a stint and played football while he was there. Joshua borrowed his helmet and a football player was born. He did awesome!
The Grade 5's performed the Wishy Washy song, probably THE BEST song in the play. I know I'm a bit biased, but it was the cutest thing ever. Emma's "twin" went in dirty, and out came Emma G all clean. The blur is her running out of the washing machine.
I do love school productions. I love how the kids all come together, work hard, and do something creative and entertaining. It's beautiful!
