This week has been a week of drama, and believe it or not, this has been a good thing. For starters I took the wife to see the Lion King on Thursday. On Friday we got to go in the morning to see our daughter Kaitlyn perform in her drama camp performance. That night my wife and I took Kaitlyn to see the NAHS production of High School Musical. After seeing the movie umpteen million times I knew the story well. It was very surprising to note that they have added a few new musical numbers and added a couple new characters. Overall I was impressed with the production until I realized that I was watching High School kids, then I was blown away. I remember back to my days in High School and I just don't remember the production values being so good. Even with limited space the sets were awesome.
All last week my daughter had the opportunity to take part in the NAHS drama camp themed around this years production of High School Musical. They got to learn impromptu skits based on HSM as well as a dance and the song "We're all in this together" for the finale. If you have kids and get a chance to enroll them in camp I highly recommend it. The drama director said it best. "Taking a kid to a camp like this is like taking a non-swimmer to a pool or lake. " It allows them to see something they have never seen before.
OH, BTW if you look at the front row you will see three girls. My daughter is the one on the right.

Took the wife last night to go see the traveling Broadway production of Lion King and it was awesome. If you ever get the chance to go I highly recommend it. Be careful where you sit though. The Grand tier is normally a good place to sit but in the case of the Lion King the orchestra is a much better location, especially if you get an aisle seat. The cast actually comes out into the aisles and some of the take the stage from the aisles. Truly awesome spectacle.

Let's be realistic. With the exception of a few films, (Empire Strikes back, Aliens) most sequels suck. This movie however makes up for all of the suck sequels I have ever seen.
I would have to say that this was probably the best movie I have seen all summer. The pace was perfect and the comedy was hilarious. The only part that dragged was the scene where Johnny is chasing the surfer right after the wedding and that was only because I had seen it so many times in the teaser.. I highly recommend this movie *****

Do you have kids? If so, do you ever want to strangle them??? I just picked them up and my oldest is whining because I won't go to the gas station and get her "Gummy worms".... You would think at 6 years old she would be beyond the stage of needing a nap in the middle of the day but I am not so sure... Oh well on a happy note tonight is date night. going out to see the new Fantastic Four movie. I will let you know how it is.
