OK, nothing is perfect, but Declan is having a super dooper awesome time at summer camp – near drownings aside. The last two weeks have been “drama” oriented. And when I say drama, I mean singing, dancing, performing. Not the crap those Jezebel chicks pulled recently.
Last week: Lion King. This week: Michael Jackson’s Thriller.
What is Amazing with a capital A has been watching Declan, a child who stood shaking in fear during the Kindergarten winter play, have a blast with all this. OK, maybe he isn’t going to be the next Gene Kelly. But, he is literally the youngest kid up there performing, and he’s keeping up (kinda) with kids twice his age. GO DEX. And whatever! Either way, he’s having a blast.
The other thing I love about all this is they are learning all aspects of theater. Makeup, costumes, lighting. The works. And everything is handmade.
Check it out for yourself. More photos in my Summer Camp Flickr set.
And the piece de resistance?
Here is Thriller, the extended version. Declan comes in around 1:46 and is on the right side of the stage. And is off-beat pretty much the whole time. Errr, I mean HE ROCKS IT!
