Someone just posted that on Facebook. “Happy 100th day of school!”
This crept up on me. Usually, elementary school students have some kind of fun, commemorative lesson on the 100th day, having to do with the number 100, or some other activity. What it means to me is we’re on the home stretch. I just hadn’t realized that today was the day. Eighty-three days left, and so much to do.
You know, if you’re in the area on 22-23 March, you should consider yourself invited to our production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. I had a “brothers” rehearsal last night, and I must say they are going to be fine. Fun show, great music, short! (just a little over an hour in length).
The interesting thing about Joseph is that it’s very much like an opera. Well, it actually is an opera, in that there are no spoken lines. All “dialogue” is sung, and the plot moves forward through the songs themselves, and each new scene is set up by the singing narrator (in our case, we have two: a couple of gals with wonderful voices). It is a very different format for our students, as all of our musicals in the past have been standard-issue, learn-your-lines Broadway.
Anyway, back to 100. Bring on the springtime!
