God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen, Let Nothing Dis-a-may
by Esther Emery
I had the great pleasure of auditioning some youngsters for Cygnet’s A Christmas Carol last night.
Us: This is Sean. He’ll be reading with you. We’ll need you to use your imagination to imagine that he is a girl and he is small, like you.
Us: When it gets to this part, just make up stuff about how great the Christmas dinner will be and how excited you are. It’s okay to go a little crazy.
Them: Sage and onions are, like, really yummy! Yum, sage and onions! But I wish it was turkey because goose is, like, eww.
Us: Now I’ll be your brother. Tell me about how you’re going to bring me home for Christmas and how much fun we’re going to have.
Them: I’ve come to bring you home, dear brother! Home! And we’re going to have so much fun! Because…we can sit around!
I love their brave souls.
