Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

Recently, my girls were given the opportunity to be in their very first play... as Oompa Loompas.  
They loved it! Even with all the practices, they are both ready to do another one in the future.  
I had a good time too... seeing the cast members from their first reading all the way through the performances was really interesting.  And while *I* will never act in a play, it was a lot of fun to be on the fringe.
So, here are my quickly snapped photos of The Randy Players version of Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. 

I am so proud of my kids.  I could never be on stage, and the two of them seem to have no problems with stage fright or nerves.  I honestly believe Kali comes alive behind a microphone and Syli seems to enjoy entertaining on stage just as much. It amazes me and I hope they continue to be as outgoing as they are right now.  
I wanted to say thank you to all our friends who came to watch Syli and Kali be semi-anonymous Oompas.  I think the highlight of their weekend was recounting all the people they knew in the audience.
