Rapunzel!

This year I signed Emma up for "Up With Kids" a little theater option for kids here.  This year they were performing Rapunzel, and since we are big Princess fans around here in the Cunningham house, I thought that Emma would enjoy it.

It was an interesting format.  The kids started in September.  That's right!  One entire year on one play.  They learned songs, they had some acting little lessons like projecting emotions and projecting their voices.  Months and months later, they finally got a script.  Each child got about five to seven lines.  Emma was a viking.  She was Astrid the viking and was nervous because she had to call people "losers" in the play and that just is not allowed at home.  But she warmed up to it.

Emma has a great voice, and she was also able to sing a song at the beginning of the play with two other girls.  They were princesses.  She did great!  I love Emma, and I am always so proud of her!

YAY! Halley did "up with kids" before we moved here and loved it. I only wish we had discovered it a little sooner! It was one of the hard things to leave behind.

Pretty Cool! Probably should have gotten her autogragh before ya'll left so that we could show that we knew her when she was just a rising star!
