We also wrapped up Drama/Theater week by sharing our Morning Thing Fave 5.
In honor of Drama – we came up with a list of 5 dream roles – the characters we would most love to play on stage!

  1. Wesley would love to play Hamlet because he loves Shakespeare. Hamlet is his favorite play from Shakespeare. The character has a lot of levels and emotions that would be fun to explore.
  2. Faith would love to play Annie because it was the first play she ever saw. Annie’s character is energetic and truly cares about others.
  3. Jenna would love to play Anna from Disney’s “Frozen on Ice”. She loves the innocent and sweet personality of the character. Plus, she wants to learn how to ice skate.
  4. Marcy would love to play Ms. Hannigan from Annie. She would love to be completely over-dramatic on stage with Ms. Hannigan’s crazy costumes and fun songs.
  5. Together, we would love to play the cast of The Sound of Music. Marcy can play Maria. Joe would play Captain Von Trapp. Wesley would play Rolf. Jenna would play Liesl. Faith would be Gretl.
