The lion, the skit and the toilet paper

It’s time for another round of bragging about how Stage Kids has helped my kid. (See previous posts here and here.)

My daughter and her classmates were recently studying about King Tut in social studies class. Her group of three girls created the usual tri-board presentation, but they also went for the extra credit and put together a skit on the untimely death of Tutankhamun (yes, I Googled how to spell that). Thanks to her classes, training and performances with Stage Kids Washington, my daughter was able to write a two-scene skit including a narrator, parts for all three girls and props. She talked about it for days. She planned, she wrote, she went running through the house the morning of her skit with a roll of toilet paper (to wrap her classmate up as a mummy, of course).

I’m expecting them to receive an A, and rumor has it they’ve been asked to perform the skit for the whole sixth grade.

I love her creativity! I’m so grateful for a program like Stage Kids where kids can grow in character, gain confidence, make good friends and create lifetime memories. And there’s that acting, singing and dancing stuff too.

Their next performance is Disney’s Lion King Jr. May 18-21 at the Numerica Performing Arts Center. Hop on over to to get tickets. Don’t procrastinate, they’re expecting all shows to sell out.
