Yesterday our four youngest children participated in a musical at church as part of their Kid's Church end of year service.
B4 was asked to play the male lead Max- a guardian angel,
even though he actually graduated from Kids Church last year,
as they didn't have any boys old enough to take on this major role.
B5 was a shepherd with a singing part,
and The Girl was part of the choir
The Girl singing and B3 is at the side in his "formal angel attire".
The children have only had about 40 mins to practice each Sunday this term.
They did very well despite the short amount of practice time,
even after the "innkeeper" fainted right off the front of the stage during the first song (thankfully we have several doctors in our congregation who were able to see to him) and had to be quickly replaced by one of the older teenage girls in our church, who enjoys acting and was able to walk on stage at a minute's notice.
Here is a lovely photo of B3 and The Girl, outside after the service, B1 is in the green shirt in the background.
I take no responsibility for the photos,
VCH and B2 handled that while I helped feed, water and keep the little ones in one place while they were off stage.
