I'm sure there is no shortage of drama...j/k but i had no where else to ask this. My daughter starts a full-time month long theatre and drama workshop on Tuesday at our performing arts center. They will be working on Tortoise and the Hare as their final performance. She is 8 years old. She is very shy but also a great performer when she has small audiences. She has a great singing voice also. Loves costuming and make up, designing backdrops and anything she can use for vignettes when she's doing this at home. In fact, we are working on some really cool looks for our Lady Gaga inspired outfits for the Monster Ball Tour. She cried for an hour when i told her about what we signed her up for and then later got really excited when she found out they would be doing theatrical make up and costumes. She thought they were going to make her sing in front of large audiences on stage by herself. I'm really excited about this and i don't care what little part she does have or even if she just plays the role of a background tree. I hope it motivates her to enjoy being a part of something and help with her shyness and desire to perform and bring out emotions in the audience. I will keep you posted on how this goes if i get a response from people who also have a history in this sort of venue.
