Nutcracker Tents

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
I took Jude to Karenna's Nutcracker rehearsals tonight. 

Throughout the rehearsal, I found myself explaining the Nutcracker to Jude, as well as what the costumes would look like on the night of the actual event.  It wasn't a full dress rehearsal, so during the party scene Karenna, who was supposed to play a boy, was not dressed as one, and the female guests had hoop shirts without their full dresses.

He was very interested, and for the most part, for a four-and-half-year-old boy, did a good job paying attention.  He got really into the rehearsal.  The only problem was when he'd get really into it and he'd laugh out loud or shout out at the characters.

At one point he pointed to one of the party women in hoop skirts and announced loudly, "See, those are not dresses, those are tents." His eyes got very big and his hands gestured as he continued, "They are never going to get out of those things. Ever."
