As the day of the first show came near, he was so excited. But then he got a stomach flu. The poor angel had a horrible temp and sickly stomach. He missed the first night of the show and was so sad about it. I was sure he would not make it to any of the shows actually … but he was determined not to miss the rest. So, we armed him with lots of meds, some ginger ale, and extra attention … and helped him through his next 3 shows. He rocked it. Of course. And what an incredible lesson in teamwork, and perserverance (he slept for the following two days though – but it was the sleep of the satisfied).
Thanks to all those involved in this production … and with childrens’ theatre EVERYWHERE.
