Blackbeard the Pirate

Last week four of the kids participated in the Missoula Children's Theater.  It is a travelling theater group that goes all over working with kids and putting on plays.  They do a great job!  Our school did the play Blackbeard the Pirate.  Monday afternoon they had tryouts and got their parts and practice began.  Makenna got the part of Yellowbeard the Pirate.  Zane was one of the assistant directors (he did not want to be in the play but he wanted to be a part of it).
Zeke and Olivia were parrots.

They practiced every night for the rest of the week.  It was a long week and they were pretty tired by Friday night but they were excited for the performances the next day.  Saturday they got to school at 11am for their one and only dress rehearsal.  Their first performance was at 3pm and their second one was at 5:30pm.  They did a great job!  I am amazed at how well they learned their parts in such a short amount of time.  There were 65 kids that were a part of the play.  The two directors from Missoula Children's Theater did a great job!  I hope that the school will have them come back again so that the kids can experience it again!
