Shakespeare in the Park
Hello everyone! We recently went to a performance called MT Shakes and they performed scenes from A Mid-summers Night Dream. They also had some pretty fun workshops. There were three workshops. One was a fighting workshop that taught us how to fight like they do in plays. We learned how to pretend to fight with fists and hair pulling, although no one got hurt, it was incredibly fun to do! One of the moves that we learned was called “the knap”. It’s where you make a punching noise by clapping and then a second later, you drop one hand and you slap the side of your face with the other. The face grabbing makes it look like you really got hurt! Also, your hands are always in motion to make a visual distraction from the clapping. The other two classes were rhyming and costume designing.
My brother, Ethan, really enjoyed the classes and the play. He yelled, and clapped, and laughed during the play. E’s favorite class was the rhyming class. In the rhyming class they used one of his ideas and Ethan was incredibly excited by that! E liked playing all of the games in the rhyming class.
Arthur stayed at home with Dad and they had an awesome day together! First, they ran a few errands. Then they went to the dog park with Beary. Beary had a wonderful time there because there were some dogs there that were right around his size. They went to Mc Donalds where Arthur had french fries and got a stuffed puppy. Then they came home and watched Magic School Bus and played on the playscape. That was their wonderful day.
