Emmie the Director

Emmie has been inviting everyone she sees to the puppet show on her birthday. This puppet show is something she has been putting together all on her own for months. She has made more than 30 puppets. Every day she brings home 1 or 2 pictures that she colored at her after school program. At home she carefully cuts them out and tapes a craft stick to the back. I should probably sit down with her at some point and put together an outline. She has also told me that anyone who talks doesn’t get cake. She has never been one for performing but I guess this is different.

Yesterday she told me that she’s doing a play – 2 plays really: 3 Little Pigs and Jack and the Beanstalk like in her Leap Frog movie. She spent the entire ride home from mandolin practice telling me all the ins and outs of costumes, scenery and actors. She has hired me to do the costumes (and was disappointed when they weren’t done this morning) and is planning on getting actors from her class including getting the giant from the big kid classes. I asked her if she was going to be in it and she said no.

So as the Producer (and costumer) I guess I need to find a venue.

    I love that she is doing this and these details are awesome. I wonder if squeals of delight are acceptable during her show? If I get to see it I am not sure I could stifle them 🙂
