If An Athlete Gets Athletes Foot, What Does A Snowmen Get?


This afternoon, after picking my new-battery installed car from the theatre, I went to the school to watch the dress rehearsal of Alex and Alyssa’s Elementary Christmas program.  I just found out about it this morning and since I am otherwise engaged this evening, I thought I would go and lend an ear.  The program was divided up into two adorable musical revues.  The K-2 portion featured close to 90 little ones in a show entitled The Incredible Reindeer.  It seems that an asteroid is hurtling straight toward the North Pole which will not only wipe out the planet but will cancel Christmas.  Enter a quartet of super-powered reindeer: Lightspeed, Mighty Moose, Laser, and Robodeer.  Will the heroes save the day and who will lead the sleigh through the murky fog with Rudolph out with a cold?

The second half was an American Idol parody entitled North Pole Star.  The eight reindeer were the contestants with the host and three celebrity judges: Santa and Mrs. C, and the obligatory Simon stand in (sorry did not catch the name).  The audience got into the act by voting for their favorite on a ballot sheet.  Personally, I thought Comet the Comic was the most talented, but once again I was not in the majority.

The shows were really cute little ones standing in front of the microphone delivering their short lines. I was impressed with many of the older kids’ solos, not bad for the age group.  I remember the program my 5th grade year, the masterpiece that is Santa and the Snowmobile.

  1. Really, taylhis? I find it hard to believe that most schools do not have a holiday music program. Is the little one’s school not as musically prolific as the high school, it seems like the older ones have a concert at least once a month?

  2. I remember my 5th grade Christmas show. I was not picked to be in the cast (those not picked comprised the chorus). I wonder, had I been picked would I have started acting before my senior year in high school? I don’t know if my junior high did theatre at that point in time, but certainly I could have started as a freshman if not.

    Ah, the road not taken…
