Drama Queen's Play

Scout standing on the stage after the show.
You all know that the Drama Queen teaches theater and English classes at a small-town high school. She was handed this assignment in August and she has had problems everywhere. The old director never secured the rights to her fall musical, so when she was supposed to be running auditions, she was scrambling to find something in the public domain that would work.

She finally found one called Princess Ida, but it was outdated and she couldn't possibly have that, so she spent the better part of a week rewriting it.

 Then it was time for auditions.

She agonized over choosing her cast, but when it was finally over and things were set, she never looked back! Even though it was Scout's birthday, we managed to drive the hour and a half to attend the performance tonight.

It was so fun to see what she had created out of pretty much nothing! Her students love and respect her and she did a great job modernizing the play and making it fun for them.

One of the real payoffs of being a parent is watching my child grow up and achieve her dreams. I am so proud of that girl!

She is finally a true Drama Queen.

Way to go, Drama Queen! I never knew that they had to secure rights to a musical, but I guess that does make sense! Hopefully she doesn't run into too many more problems like that!

I can't believe she had to rewrite the whole thing. That's a lot of work. I'm glad that it went so well.
