Follow the Yellow Brick Road

May 22, 2007

For the spring play, the Drama Club performed The Wizard of Oz. For a drama club composed entirely of second and third graders, I thought it was a bit ambitious, but I was pleasantly surprised by how nice of a job they did. To make it manageable for the children, they divided lines between multiple children playing the same parts. Thus, there were eight Dorothys and multiple scarecrow, tin men, and lions among other things.

Our oldest son played a munchkin (see the above pictures). He had more lines than last time and did a great job. I am continually amazed at how adaptable children are. He has been in the U.S. less than two years, and yet he has learned English well enough to nicely perform parts with multiple lines in his school’s drama club.

A big thanks go out to all the teachers who spent extra time after school to teach our children this art!
