Lionwood Christmas Carol

Dan's school this year have decided to do A Christmas Carol for the Year 2s and Dan to his delight has been cast as Scrooge's nephew Fred. We have a proper script and we're rehearsing every night. Fortunately the script is heavily based on The Muppet Christmas Carol which Dan loves so it's not too onerous. On the other hand if we have to do the "It's good to be heckling again! " lines anymore I may scream. It's all very exciting and Dan is throwing himself into the role although deeply embarrassed that he has to say he is in love "Ewww gross mummy!"

That sounds like excellent fun! The Muppets Christmas Carol is third in my all time list of best films, behind only The Princess Bride and The Muppets Treasure Island... :)

It's a brilliant idea. The school have gone all out and actually invested in some proper costumes and the children are taking it very seriously. They had to audition for speaking parts and I think Dan may secretly be hoping that Edward falls ill so he can be Scrooge. He did tell me that the girl who is playing Gonzo who is playing Charles Dickens has to wear a blue nose but I think that might be wishful thinking.
