I was not teaching at my school when my two grandsons, Joshua and Jay were in Grade 6 and 7 there. (They are now in Grade 9 and 10 respectively) During that year they both took part in a musical put on by the Art and Drama teacher who adapted it as a school production. The show was – Guys and Dolls. Jay played the part of Branigan the policeman and Josh was in the evangelical parade that trooped across the stage at regular intervals.
So when my hairdresser, Johan informed me that he had a part in the same show at The Artscapes, I decided to take the family to see it. It would be great for the boys to see their characters portrayed by professionals. On Sunday afternoon we all piled into the Caravelle, picked up Laurie from her flat in Woodstock and made our way to The Theatre! Wow – did we enjoy it! And the boys and girls who performed in the school version can certainly be proud of themselves. They portrayed their characters beautifully.
Laurie lives in an apartment in Upper East Side, Woodstock. It is part of a Hilton Hotel Complex which comprises of the hotel, a shopping centre and apartments. After the show we treated the daughters and grandsons to a meal at a Liberty Restaurant which in her complex. The food was excellent and we all had a thoroughly good time.
