I'm Dreaming Of A White Christmas...

I’m dreaming of a White Christmas…already!! Each fall, Redding Christian School has an All-School Musical at the Cascade Theater in Redding. RCS students 3rd – 12th grade can audition for the musical. This year, they are doing White Christmas, a musical based on the 1954 film. There are 50+ kids in the production. The dates are October 28th at 7:00 p.m. and October 29th at 11:00 a.m. They will also be doing a matinee on Friday morning for area schools.

Lyle is playing the part of Phil (Danny Kaye in the movie). He is very excited to have a lead role. He has many, many lines to memorize and songs and intense dances to learn. Lyle and several of the other cast members are even learning to tap dance. Practices are four days a week for three hours a day, but Lyle is loving every minute of it!! Here’s a picture taken at practice the other day:

This will be Lyle’s last RCS All-School Musical. :0( They started doing these musicals in 2005 (when Lyle was in sixth grade), and he has performed in all of them:

• Schoolhouse Rock Live!
• Anne of Green Gables
• Alice in Wonderland
• Music Man
• Beauty and the Beast
• Oliver

If you live in the Redding area, please try to come. I promise you won’t be disappointed!
