The Magic Eagle

Jupiter has a new plan. She's a great one for planning. Parties, mostly. But today, she's embarked on a new plan.

She is going to make up a "singing ballet." At the moment, the singing ballet is called "The Magic Eagle." She has talked nonstop about it for 45 minutes. She's assigned various parts to members of her nursery school class. I told her that's called the cast. She's described the plot to me. So far it seems to contain elements of Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella, (she told me who Cinderella's evil ancestors were, but I think she means stepsisters...)Swan Lake, the Firebird, Nutcracker, and Magic Flute. We haven't seen Magic Flute, but we've been talking about going to see BLO do a preview of it. She's brainstorming costumes.

And it's going to be on a real stage. With lights. And curtains. And real seats where people can sit. She will have stage fright, but she'll have her friends with her so it's okay. And we have to make fliers so on the big day people can come watch. And when its the big day, she can wear makeup.

I told her I would help her write it all down, if she wanted to write it down. If only I were half as creative as she is!!! I can't wait to see the big show!!!

I want to see it! Boy, she sounds like me..lol. I was writing and casting plays at her age too, and forcing all my brothers and neighbors into roles. I'd put them on in my backyard and charge 5 cents admission!
