The Stage and Talent Show

We had a little talent show at our reunion last weekend.

A suitable area was chosen for the stage. Shade was an important consideration on this hot weekend, and, of course, it had to be nicely decorated.

Sue took on most of this task and is getting approval from her sister, Heather, in the first photo.



Then came the show with Danica and her cousin, Frances, as the MCs.



Rosie and Lukas did a magic act, helped by various audience members. JJ was the helper in this photo; he's wearing one of the two masks that he created in the previous craft session.


When it was JJ's turn, Amma and Buppa helped him lead the rest of the family in arousing rendition of  Puff the Magic Dragon.


Danica did a freestyle dance routine and kept going like a pro despite losing a sandal.



Then came the Tucker clan in their grand and glorious show stopping dragon.



We did a few cousins group shots at the end.



The empty stage: the first two in the evening, followed by a night shot.

"Enchanting" is sthe best description I've seen in the comments. Don't understand why you took photos instead of videos, but the choice always goes to the artistic director.

What marvellous fun, I wish I had been in the front row at that memorable performance. I remember putting on "shows" as a child too, in the living room behind the bay window curtains, rather than outside. What a hoot! Loved those pics.
