Spamalot

Maggie Mae, Spamalot, February @2014 Jackson
Recently, our three youngest children had occasion to go to a local theater to see a version of Monty Python's Spamalot. Seven of their friends were performing in this event. They were very excited to be in attendance. It was performed in a local historic theater.

The initial plan had been for our son to sit between his two sisters. He decided that perhaps that wouldn't be a good idea because he wouldn't hear a thing if they got to talking. This was a very good move on his part, as he soon learned.

Our youngest daughter took the middle seat, having no clue what was going to transpire before the afternoon was over. Had she known, she probably wouldn't have taken the middle seat, either!

Unknown to the kids, there was to be a moment of audience participation. Our youngest daughter was in the "victim's" seat and was brought onto the stage. She was totally shocked at this turn of events. She got through it like a trooper, though.

I asked her later what she thought about what happened, about her debut in community theater. She wasn't at all impressed by the surprise, but if she'd had advanced warning, she would have been ecstatic to be on stage in that theater.

After the performance, she got lots of hugs and apologies for having it sprung on her like that. Everyone was very nice.

It was definitely an afternoon to remember for them all!
