Small pantomime



The girls' main present was a puppet theatre. We've been treated to a couple of little plays since Christmas morning, mostly involving a monkey, a selection of pigs and a rather two-dimensional princess. I captured one of these performances yesterday morning. 

It's chaotic. Part way through one of the stage hands gets bored and asks if she can 'play with playdoh in a minute', I ran out of batteries before the finale and the entire production takes place in pyjamas but I think this might become a family favourite. Merry Christmas.

P.S. Festive preparations took over in the last week and I haven't yet managed to compile the Making Winter mosaics. They'll be on their way soon.

Is it weird that I found myself saying "hello!" back at the screen in a pig voice?

Priceless!

Priceless Emma, just priceless. :)

I always wanted my kids to do this. They eschewed the puppets. They did do 'shows', where we had to endure 20 minutes of them leaping on a bed to the HSM soundtrack.

Little Lad has now watched the video five times in a row, and on each viewing, he laughs uproariously at the vigorous oinking. And exclaims that Pebble #2 is "so cute!"

Email coming shortly.

Magnificent grunting baritone that pig has. And your pebbles are the cutest!

How sweet, I would have loved the theatre when I was a child. I wonder if it will form a love of acting in either of them?

Wonderful minimalist dialogue. The hand-held camera lends a nice edgy, realistic feel. :)

How sweet they are. A family classic to be sure.

That princess's acting was perhaps a little wooden? ;) Love the oinking of that pig though! I'm sure you're right - that little video will become a classic. So glad you had a good Christmas, and here's wishing you all a wonderful 2012 :) x
