Our daughter-in-law and granddaughter invited me to go along to attend a children's production of Disney's Little Mermaid based on the Hans Christian Anderson story and the Disney film.
The venue was Lawrence Family Jewish Community Center located in La Jolla. They offer a variety of youth programs throughout the year including CAMP JAYCEE. This particular production involved 8 and 9 year old cast of about 50. Under the guidance of a director and camp counselors, children rehearsed for 3 weeks and tonight was the culmination of their hard work.
The production was wonderful. We can sense the enthusiasm, energy and joy of the children, staff, parents and rest of the audience. Applause was long and enthusiastic. With candy bouquets, balloons and flowers, everyone rushed to congratulate their tiny performers as they came out of the back stage.
It was an enjoyable evening and reminiscent of the time when our sons were active in their school drama productions.
