Thoroughly Modern Millie, Jr.

Since just after Christmas break Kali has been attending play practices anywhere from 3 to 6 days a week for 3 hours or more each time. This weekend has been the performances. The group of 4th to 8th graders have been fantastic! I have been so impressed with all the effort they have put into this play. Three of the students had to learn how to say their lines in Chinese. Boy o boy was that a tough one for them. Kudos go to the director for getting tape recordings of the lines from a native speaker as well and letting the kids know they needed to not stereotype their parts. Kali played the part of Lucille, a flapper and a modern. There was a surprise part of her as well. That of Hong Kong Mama. A very important part!

Here are a few pics from the play!
