Tonight Cassie and Caroline debuted in their very first play, Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare. The play came together marvelously. Cast, crew, and audience all had a great time!
Cassie played the middle-aged spinster aunt, Antonia, getting many a hearty laugh with her animated, boisterous, comedy and drama. Caroline played a messenger (wearing an adorable brown velvet cape with matching hat, black pants, and puffy sleeved shirt) and Sister Anne offering elegance, grace, and emotional delivery of her important lines.
Mrs. Carr, the director, asked us to refrain from snapping photos during the play so as not to distract the kids. These photos are from afterwards when the pink-cheeked girls were mingling with their audience.

Tired but happy. A wonderful experience!
Cassie and Caroline can't wait to see what the rest of the school year in Shakespeare class has to offer.
