School of Rock

Somehow this entry never got posted . . .

Micah was cast as the piano playing Lawrence in AYT's "School of Rock" that played for two weekends in September. He learned more about music and playing with other musicians in six weeks than he's learned so far in his life.

My favorite/least favorite part of having kids in shows is taking them back and forth to rehearsals. I love the time I have alone with them in the car to talk and find out what's going on in their lives. As we headed to a performance one day, this song came on the radio and Micah had to take a picture of it.
I know it doesn't make sense to most of you, but this song is actually in "School of Rock" and he went a little crazy about it.

His character was a dorky kid who never felt like he had friends until he was in the band.
He had more lines than I thought he would, and he did a good job. I loved watching him onstage.
Singing isn't his favorite thing, and singing by himself is even less of his favorite thing, but he had a solo, and every night he gave it his best shot. I was proud of him.

 He even learned a few rock moves like the tongue hanging out during curtain call.
Great job, Mikes. I don't know if there will be more shows in his future, but this one was one he'll always remember.
