They had a beautiful stage set up with poinsettias scattered about and two 7 or 8-foot pine trees flocked white for Bingham and covered with white lights and large blue balls. I'm pretty sure they were fake since they would scatter pine needles everywhere otherwise.
|Wish I would have had a wider shot so you could see the tree.|
The audience gasped as a large blue ball rolled across the stage toward the choir teacher's feet. We all wondered what might happen next, until the principal strode purposefully to center stage and picked up the ball. Then she turned to the tree and I think as an audience we were expecting her to do the right thing by picking up the tree and sliding it away from the curtain.
The audience roared with laughter when she bent over and instead of righting it, she grabbed the top branch and simply dragged it off the stage.
