Lovely in the Limelight

Halle & Her Director/Acting Class Teacher
February 15th was Halle's debut on the Big White Way. Perhaps it wasn't Broadway, but to us it felt pretty darn close! Here are some pictures of her oh-so-convincing portrayal of "Princess Brooke", the younger sister of the princess whom the frog is trying to reform.

Halle loved getting flowers from both her grandparents!
We enrolled Halle in acting classes for two reasons: 1) We feel it's important each child have something they do that is just "theirs". Something they can feel good about. And 2) Any chance of "channelling" her dramatics into something other than every day life at home is a chance worth taking (so far not seeing much help in this area, but we'll keep trying!) ha ha

We were so proud! As much as we joke around about her being a Drama Queen, I do have to brag a bit and say that she really did quite well. Very, very well! She spoke confidently and loudly, faced the audience with a smile, and knew her lines well (in addition to everyone else's, whom she eagerly "helped" (even if they didn't need it) by whispering (loudly) in their ear "Say [this]..."). She definitely enjoys center stage and the limelight!

She did a great job! Thanks so much for inviting us to come see. My girls still talk about going to see "The Frog Prince." They think Halle is famous!
