Our little ham

Little Elvis still loves to entertain. Since his last play went so well, we let him audition for another one yesterday afternoon. He did so well! And I will admit that I am biased.

These pictures are funny poses that he wanted to do. He was very Austin Powers or Zoolander with some of them.
While we were waiting for everyone to fill out their forms to audition, I tried to get my antsy boy to look at the script they had given us. I am not much of a coach or backstage mom. I mainly wanted to make sure he could read some of the more difficult words, like pasteurize, and tell him what they meant. My directions were to be loud, and if he gets a sentence with a question mark to ask a question. If he gets one with an exclamation point, be louder. That's all I've got.

He went up with the first group. He's still one of the youngest, but he was loud and read his line well. At least he did, when he realized it was his turn. He kind of got bored, and turned around a few times. After the first read through, the kids were going to do it again. The director asked if they knew what pasteurize meant, and then explained. When she was finished, he told her that his mommy had already told him that. He also informed her that curds and whey was cottage cheese, and that's his brother's favorite food. Little Elvis is a know it all.
Then it was time to sing. They all had to sing "Happy Birthday." I wish they had a choice. He would have picked, "You give love a bad name" by Bon Jovi. Since he didn't get to choose, he decided to rock "Happy Birthday." By that, I mean he literally made it a rock song. He played his air guitar and sang in a very rock n roll style. It was funny and cute. One mom asked if we practiced it that way. No. I would have told him not to, and it was great that he did it. This child has no fear in front of an audience.
He got to go back up and read for another part twice. For that part, he figured out that he was supposed to whisper, and asked the director if he could whisper. She told him what a stage whisper was. He did the stage whisper, and then he "acted" out the other parts by exclaiming loudly, since there were exclamation points! (I don't think he really needed me to tell him to do that. He naturally exclaims everything anyway.)

I thought he did a great job, and he had fun. They are supposed to post the cast list, but I've not been able to find it. The good thing about these shows is that every kid that tries out gets a part. I tried for several plays when I was little and sometimes didn't get any parts. It's nice that all the kids who put forth the effort get a chance.

He did tell me yesterday that there's a boy in his class who has been mean to him. The boy apparently says Little Elvis is too small for the first grade. This boy must be a giant, because Little Elvis is definitely average height for a 1st grader. He's not the smallest in his class. I told him to tell the boy a joke the next time he tries to make fun of him. Maybe he won't be mean if Little Elvis makes him laugh. Apparently, I gave this same advice last year. He said it didn't work. But he didn't really follow my directions. The little boy who was being mean said something mean, and instead of telling a joke, Little Elvis did a funny dance. I can picture this. I'm sure that the other little boy had no idea how to react. The good news is that they are friends this year. I told Little Elvis to stick with jokes this time, and not dances. I'm trying to push this one on him: When is the best time to go to the dentist? Tooth-hurty! HA! I love that one.

Little Elvis sound little a natural when it comes to acting. How cool!

I like your tooth joke. Can't wait to share it with N as soon as he gets home.
