Play Time

Bonnie's play premiered last night.   She did a good job and I was really proud of her.  Bonnie was one of the maids in waiting and was in most of the choruses.  She had a dance number and was also featured as Cinderella in one scene.  
 In case you didn't know, Once Upon a Mattress is the story of the Princess and the Pea.  You know, the story about the queen wanting to make sure the girl her son, the Prince, wants to marry is a true princess so she sends the girl to sleep on twenty mattress and places a small pea under the bottom one.  The princess couldn't sleep all night because of the little lump made by the pea, therefore, declaring that she is a true princess.
 Of course, this play tells the details behind the whole story. The young men and women did an awesome job
with their acting, singing, and dancing.  The set was amazing.  I told you before that a young man who is originally from Leavenworth, but now designs sets in Hollywood, put their set together.  It will be a sad day when the kids have to tear it down and repaint the floors their boring black.
