Our kids had the chance to perform in Miss Margene's Nutcracker this year, and it was fun to have four kidlets take part of the fun!
So, let's start the tour.
Logan performed in party scene as a guest and a toy solider and also sang prelude music with musical theater. This was his first Nutcracker and he LOOOOVED being on stage. I'm glad he has found a passion for performing.
This was also Gavin's first Nutcracker. He was in party scene, danced as a forest guardian, and also performed prelude music with the musical theater group.
(Sorry boys, I have no video of your performances -- they are on Josh's camera so hopefully I can add some soon so someday your grandkids can watch you get your dance on!)
Elinor is a Nutcracker veteran (this is year three for her). She even had a small semi-solo in her group number, Petite Waltz of the Flowers. She was wonderful! While her true love is dance, she puts up with being part of musical theater too (actually, she likes it, just not nearly as much as dance).
See our Belly-Boo shine (or bloom...after all, she's a flower).
And last, but not least, Aubrey Dawn -- the one who started it all. Aubs was in the Mice & Soldiers routine for her third time (that piece is always a favorite -- check out the video below to see why), danced in Spanish, and sang with Musical Theater (which is her true love...although this year she has spread her wings and also adores dancing ballroom so Spanish was a perfect fit for her).
And if you'd like to sample Spanish, feel free to have a taste.
All the fun of Nutcracker 2017 thanks to Miss Margene.
