Olivia recently had a leading role in a local town theatre. She played the part of Bernadette, an investigative journalist in Porridgegate. She loved practicing, making some new friends, and . . . making the front cover of the newspaper!
Here she is with her sidekick, the Woodsman,
and her awesome director,
and another homeschool friend.
Porridgegate is a comical play intertwining "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," "The Three Little Pigs," and also parodies several figures from the Watergate scandal. Olivia’s character was part of a dynamic duo who investigated whether there truly was a scandal. In the end, Bernadette (Olivia) (who was a parody of Carl Bernstein, journalist of The Washington Post), the Woodsman (who was a parody of Bob Woodward, journalist of The Washington Post), and Kitty Saltine (who was a parody of Katharine Graham, publisher of The Washington Post) solved the truth behind the missing porridge.
After Olivia's "stardom" experience she has asked to be in another performance. With great hesitation, Mom has said it might be a little while since we dedicated over 65 hours to Porridgegate alone. Whew!
Between you and me though, there might be a possibility coming up again very soon. She is a "seasoned" thespian now, afterall. ;)
