Of Bats and Dwarfs

July 13, 2008

That’s what it’s been all about at our place this week. Maddy and Isabel both got parts in our local Missoula Children’s Theater production of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Maddy was a dwarf named Humpty (the MCT obviously has their own rendition of plays) and Isabel was a bat. It was Maddy’s fifth year doing it and Isabel’s first year. She’s been waiting anxiously since last summer to be old enough to do it.

Here’s a picture of the full cast.

And the bats. Isabel is the third from the right in the top row.

She’s the center upper bat, the shortest one with the cute round face.

Maddy is the dwarf immediately next to Snow White in the bottom row.

They both did great jobs, though Isabel experienced many scared moments thinking she couldn’t do it and then having a meltdown after the last show when she couldn’t find Maddy in the dressing rooms and thinking she had been left down there. All was well in the end.

If you are unfamiliar with the Missoula Children’s Theater, it is a great organization. Their actor/director duos travel around to about 1100 communities each year and perform productions with about 65,000 kids. They have been doing this for a very long time. There is even an award-winning documentary coming out this summer all about MCT. It is called The Little Red Truck, it is playing in only a few places right now, but it would be worth while to see behind the scenes of this great service that they do for children.
