Peter Pan

Madeleine's drama class ends this week with a performance of Peter Pan at Putney Arts Theatre. Our hero is an Indian (or "Native American" - but these Brits are not quite up for such a modern expression). Madeleine comfortable with her lines and has a nice stage presence. The 40 or so in the audience give the little dears our cheer. Afterwards Marcus joins us for a sleep-over.

Me: "Anything to say about 'Peter Pan'?"
Madeleine: "Like what?"
Me: "Were you nervous in the play?"
Madeleine: "Yeah, a little bit."
Me: "Like when?
Madeleine: "Especially when I did the dance. Remember that?" [The kids sing Alphavilles' "Forever Young" inserting various Peter Pan appropriate lyrics]
Sonnet: "Yes, I wish I could watch it every day."
Me: "Anything else?"
Madeleine: "Oh, Dad."
