The Kid’s Department of our church puts on a musical each Spring, and Olivia and Farrah have participated for the past few years. This year’s play was entitled “Jonah’s Druthers”, and the setting was the Wild, Wild West. The girls wanted french braids, and Olivia’s long-time friend – a budding braider – was happy to do the job.
The girls didn’t want to audition for a speaking role in the musical, but they were both dancers (they performed fabulously!) and Olivia eventually agreed to have a speaking part: a scripture cowgirl where she decided one scripture on the mic. Her delivery was impeccable! Next year as a sixth grader will be her last opportunity to be in kid’s choir, and I’m pretty sure she’ll want to audition for a larger role. This was a fun show!
