My children just wrapped on a production of Narnia: The Musical. And I know I'm biased and what not, you know, not exactly the most objective of reporters, but they were awesome.
Aidan played the role of the White Witch and Cole played the role of Mr. Beaver. This is the first show in which they both played leading roles, and man did they play them to the hilt.
I realize some of you who read this blog might think, "Sure, why wouldn't kids of yours be in theater?" but the thing is, I would never have dreamed of doing something like that when I was growing up. I'm far too much of an introvert to put it all out there the way they do. I think this is why I'm always in awe when I see them on stage.
Because I can't imagine doing it myself.
And then I remember: oh yeah, this has nothing to do with me.
I love the opportunity these two give to both me and Dan to experience something new and fresh and so full of life.
Thanks, Aidan and Cole. You two are truly amazing.
