Wind in the Willows

Our town has an historic old theater that has seen a lot of change over the years we have lived here (well I suppose anywhere would, we have been here 20 years already!). Braeden was in a production of Treasure Island just after he turned eight, but didn’t want to return because he didn’t work well with the people running the youth program. We missed the boat on some of the productions with new people in charge, but he auditioned for The Wind in the Willows. I'm proud of him for giving it another chance. His initial role was that of the gypsy king (gypsy queen Zelda in the book). He ended up playing a policeman and a weasel as well. His stage fright was related to changing from Zeldon to the Policeman in only one page of script, as opposed to all the lines he had to speak!

What great have an actor on your hands. It looks like it was a great play.

Wow! He was a busy man! I hope he enjoyed the show and I'm sure he did an excellent job!
