Oliver!

Nic as the Artful Dodger, Anna as a street urchin and orphan, and Greta as a rich girl.

Last week, we lived our days and nights for the Oliver! musical. The kids had full dress rehearsals from 5 to 9:30pm 3 days in a row and then 3 performances back to back. They performed the full Broadway version, which for an elementary school, is a tall order.

The kids were excellent! Nic had several solos and some dance moves. Anna sang and danced with the other orphans and Greta came on stage for the Who Will Buy? scene. I was so proud of her getting up in front of an audience 3 times and singing with the cast.


On the final evening of the performance, Greta was brave enough to go up with Nic to take a bow.


Never far behind, John Michael was hoping to get in on the action, too.

  2. Looks like an amazing production. How fun for your kids to do that and express themselves in that way. What a great memory for them to have the rest of their lives. I bet they had so much fun.
