Ever since school ended, my daughter has been in a summer theater workshop. I will start by saying what a positive learning experience it has been for all of the children.
* It is every morning, so you may have to deal with a cranky kid when you wake them up early as if it was a regular school day.
* Although the actual performances are held for only two weekends, they are whole weekends; beginning Thursday nights and ending on Sunday afternoons.
* You will find yourself in the heat one day, just like the sports parents. It starts with standing outside in a line for about an hour because you want to pick a decent seat. You then proceed into the warm theater where you will be seated on hard plastic chairs for two and a half hours. Luckily, my husband and I came prepared with ice packs and water.
I sound like a stage mother, so it's time to relax and remind myself that she is a kid.
The goal is for the kids to learn, stay active and have some fun.
So I will now think twice before I brag to a sports parent how relieved I am that I am a theater parent.
