Dragonfly Variety Show

Last night I was witness to one of the sweetest and most entertaining variety shows...EVER. Owen's class did a complete remodel on their theater room, with red curtains, professional lighting (that the kids operate) and audience seating. (Those marks on the floor in the brochure are pictures of the kids so they knew where to stand for the last number).

The Emcee, Sophie, was super-professional as she introduced the acts.

First, four friends performed shadow dancing (beautiful):

Next, two friends individually told knock, knock jokes (hilarious):

Next, a magic trick (magical):

Next, four friends danced to They Might Be Giants, Clap Your Hands (groovy):
(get this CD if you don't already have it)

Next, our brave son took the stage to tell his knock, knock joke (hysterical):

Knock, knock.
Who's there?
Dwayne who?
Dwayne, Dwayne go away...

Way to go Owee!!!!

Then two friends sang Twinkle, Twinkle:

Everyone had a turn @ something. [This is the inside of (half) the program]:

The finale was a group number. They sang the Natural Anthem although Owen referred to it as the mountain song. Both titles are appropriate. Watching Owen concentrate so wholly on his teacher's faces (Teacher Michael has a guitar-gig outside of preschool) to get all the words right and the hand movements was precious.
I'll never forget it. Even Maya was engaged sitting on my lap the whole time. And it was a PACKED house. Moms, Dads, cousins, g'parents, siblings..all cheering, supporting and loving these kids. Super great.

Woody video'd the whole thing on our video camera but I taped a few things on our camera. So, here's part of the finale...enjoy:)
