A Pirate's Life for Me

C-Ling played the character 'Belinda' and she did an amazing job.

In fact, the whole play from beginning to end was smoothly done, well received, with some truly star performances and a few less stellar ones.

The kids performing in this play are all from grade six, 11 or 12 years old. C-Ling told me on the drive home that the play they performed is typically performed at the high school level (ages 14-15) but their main director felt that the kids had the capacity to do it.

I suspect it was just at the edge of their ability, but within their ability as clearly the show went on very well.

Thanks, Deb, for being the one to reply, reminding me that I'm not posting out into the ether.

the children are capable of more than we think. I believe they can run the country. I wonder if I should do a major research project on this (this is a thing I have to do now for completion of my masters degree and I have to do research, possibly with humans involved, and wonder if I did a human project with children as the subjects to see if they could solve all our human problems, which I think they could).

I think it would be awesome to see what a group of dedicated children can come up with to solve the variety of problems there are in the world.

Thanks for the update. I'm sure your family were very proud of her.
