Hey everybody! I’m baaaccckkk! I still haven’t recovered from spending all day at the Arts Festival on Tuesday – on a field trip singing with the school choir and back to perform with my dance company that night. At least I got a funnel cake, some Dippin’ Dots, and kettle corn out of the deal! I had fun and we danced AWESOME!
Well it’s Thursday again and you know what that means. Actually, I decided to do a Throwback Thursday Change-Up this week. I’ve been posting my old dance pictures, but after we performed and dressed up like characters from Broadway musicals for choir on Tuesday, it got me to thinking about how our music/choir teacher does a play with music in it for every grade every single year (kindergarten through fifth grade). Last year was our best play ever. I had the lead role, of course. Let me set the stage for you………. Last year, when I was in fourth grade, we did a play called the “Granny Awards.” The play is about Granny, who has retired from show business, and she has an awards show where she gives awards to all the best fairy tale characters. I played Granny and the other kids dressed up like fairy tale characters like The Big Bad Wolf, Little Red Riding Hood, Hansel and Gretel, The Three Little Pigs, The Three Little Bears, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the Fairy Godmother, and others. The Best Villain Award went to The Big Bad Wolf. The play had singing in it.
And best of all, we got to make commercials featuring fairy tale characters that the music teacher played during the “awards ceremony.” Any student who wanted to make a commercial could make one and enter it. I did a commercial where I played Princess Ainsley, a friend of Rapunzel’s, and what would I be selling in my commercial of course – hair products – Rapunzel hair products! Rapunzel has a lot of hair. She has to take good care of it to keep it shiny and long. My dad filmed the commercial in my bedroom and I even got to do the Harlem Shake. So, for this Throwback Thursday post I am changing things up – dance is out for this week and the Granny Awards are in! Check out my commercial below.
