5th grade choir production

Bella decided that she wanted to be involved in the stage crew for the 5th grade choir Christmas production. It was actually quite an elaborate production, I was very surprised. She was chosen to operate the lights, which she informed me quite excitedly, "IS THE BEST JOB IN STAGE CREW!!!" So funny. I guess it was an honor or something due to the complexity. I was also quite surprised when I saw her script for the lighting changes how complex it actually was. In my mind I thought she would just be flipping a few switches on and off, but no! It was definitely a lot of directions like, mid stage lights to 2.5 and whatnot. She did a great job though and there were no lighting mishaps, for which I was grateful.

We know she is Daniel's girl because she was all about being the lighting engineer and had ZERO interest in performing on stage....unless she is playing the piano. That doesn't make her nervous at all. Personally I was a big fan of stage time when I was her age. :) Not anymore.There was also a section in the beginning and end where she jumped up from the lighting booth and grabbed a prop, then ran into her place in line for a processional of sorts. She carried a star, marched up in the line, swayed back and forth, and tried not to make eye contact with the huge audience, lol.

So, that is now finished! I'm glad that she was interested in doing it and that her application to stage crew was accepted. It was a good experience for her all around. Merry Christmas! :)
