Theater: "Cinderella"

A group of girls at our Friday morning CCE program took it upon themselves to put on a play of "Cinderella." The director was probably all of 12 or 13 years old, with a gaggle of little girls following instructions as they "storyboarded" each scene, wrote the script, drew up a list of props and costumes, choreographed dance scenes, and then brought in a musician (John!) to play the score. These girls practiced for four Fridays in a row before performing the play today: as a gift to another little girl on her birthday.

It was a joy and privilege to watch these girls organize this entire event by themselves.
