Logan’s school put on another musical this year, Footloose about a small town in Oklahoma that bans dancing in the city limits and the kids fight city hall and win. It is based on actual events in Elmore City, Oklahoma in 1980. Read about it here.
Logan had a small part but he worked hard at it. So did his mother from shopping at Goodwill for 1980’s era clothes (why didn’t she check my closet?) to being at almost all the rehearsals and all the performances.
The teacher that directs the kids is very demanding but has a big heart. The kids really respond. This production had kids down to sixth grade participating.
Logan had a small part and he made the most of it and gave it is all.
Those of us who are parents know what it is like when you see your kid doing something and enjoying it.
This is his last high school production so we’ll see what the future holds for Logan. Will he be in any more productions? If he wants to hard enough he will.
But I will worry about that later, right now I’m enjoying his joy on the stage.
It was fun!
