A Wrinkle in Time: From Book to the Stage

Remember that strange, beloved children's book that had us wishing we could tesser, looking at stars and wondering which ones were fighting darkness, and taught us the power of love and courage?

Well... on Saturday we did our last performance of a new stage adaptation of that book - A Wrinkle in Time - and it was quite the adventure! And, for the first time since April, I was able to sleep in today. No classes, no rehearsals... nothing. It was magical.

The rehearsal process was very interesting, but it all came together in the end. And what a production it was!

And, of course, we had a blast at our cast party. From hamburgers, to paper plate "W Awards" to bouning on the trampoline with a dinosaur pinata, it was a blast. Thank you to the lovely Jenna Hawkins for the pictures!

Sheets for our Director... Mrs Buncombe's sheets, of course! Mrs Whatsit finally gave them back ;)
I got the Watchful Award
(I was always on-book, telling them the lines they were messing up)
And yes, they drew a picture of a book with the words "Levi-O-sa, not Levi-o-SA"
It makes me happy that they compare me to Hermione.
