I confessed about a year ago to being a stage grandmom. My oldest granddaughter, Hope, who is 9, has been participating in a theater group since she was 6 or so and as a frustrated performer myself I love seeing her perform. Since she played Annie in the musical Annie in February and March last year I haven't done a very good job of reporting about her performances here as any good stage grandmom should.
At Christmas she played an elf and The Queen of Hearts in Babes in Toyland.
Her cousin Averi was also in the play and their
great-grandmother Molly got to come from Omaha to see them both perform.
Last summer she played a Sea Witch in Hans Christian Anderson.

She also played a maid in Hans Christian Anderson.
She is currently in rehearsal for Once Upon A Rainbow.
She will be playing "the obnoxious sister."
Her director promised her that it wasn't type casting.
I don't know how long Hope will want to keep doing this but for now she loves it. It is a great outlet for her exuberant personality and I am having lots of fun playing the part of the stage grandmom.
