So, you want to know what I thought about the great party and spectacular play, too? Ok, but first we have to stick with the basics. By basics, I mean the party. I loved, loved, loved, loved the party so much! There were stations at the party. The first station was called Wrapping Paper. First, I thought it meant we were going to wrap a present. But instead we made our own wrapping paper. The next station was called Cookies. First I thought we were just going to eat them. But we actually decorated the cookies and had a candy cane. Then came a choice of hot chocolate and fruit punch. I chose hot chocolate. It came with marshmallows. Then our third station was called Singing Routine. I thought we were going to only sing Christmas songs. But instead we sang one Christmas song and one funny song. The funny song was first and it was called “The Moose Song”. The Christmas song was second and it was called “Jingle Bells”. The last station was called Ornaments. First, I thought we were going to decorate a tree, but when I saw no tree, then I knew I wasn’t right. We actually decorated ornaments. Overall, I loved the party!
Now, I’m going to tell you about the best part. The best part was the play! The play was totally awesome! I loved it so much. After the play, before the interviews, I was about to scream because it was so good! The play was about a girl named Junie B. Jones who was in first grade. She didn’t get along well with a girl named May in her class. If they kept on fighting, they would have to go to the Principal’s office. In the class, they picked names for their Secret Santa gifts and they each had a certain amount of money to buy a couple things. Junie B. did not think she had enough money. The play was so good, I had tears in my eyes at the end. All just because it was so good! By the way, it was also hilarious! By hilarious, I mean it was so awesomely funny!
After the play, I went backstage for a tour. I learned that on stage is called center stage. Behind the stage is called back stage. The right of the stage is called right stage and the left of the stage is called left stage.
Then I did my interviews. In my interviews, Katie McFadzen, who was Junie B., told me how she would describe the Junie B. character. Her answer was sassy, sarcastic, similar to her, and funny. Debra K. Stevens, who was May, also told me how she would describe her character. She said misunderstood, lonely, and she also worked hard to get a friend. Dwayne Hartford, who was Mr. Scary, told me how he would describe his character. He said patient, kind, and he likes kids. He also told me that Mr. Scary thinks kids are really active. Jon Gentry, who was Herb and Grandpa Miller, said he has been a Childsplay teacher and that he’s taught a LOT of classes. The first one he taught was Wilma’s Revenge. Kate Haas, who was Lucille and Elf Ellen, told me Lucille was fancy and proud. (I have also been in her class before! The class was called Holidays in July.)
Ricky Araiza, who was Jose and Mr. Toot (the music teacher), was not here for the interview. He was doing a different play. Michael Peck was Sheldon and Philip Johnny Bob. (Philip Johnny Bob is actually a stuffed animal. There was a microphone back stage so he could talk into it.) My interviews were great!
I think all of you reading this should go see the play!! Bye now. See you next time! 🙂
