Knight Black and the Three and a Half Giants

Ben spent a portion of his school year learning about fairy tales and parody. He wrote a short story, a parody of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, and then crafted the story into a stage script. He's been working the past few weeks to put his script into production on our basement stage and tonight was the big performance. Thanks to all his friends who agreed to the craziness and thanks to our friends and family who came to enjoy it! The movie is a bit grainy as we had to record it in low res to get enough memory to film the whole thing. The production was way over the top - my favorite was the Pants (Dc - the half giant) played by Philip. Everyone did a bang up job including Tad who played Knight Black's dad. The two neighbor dudes played the giants and Ben pooled another family of boys for Knight Black, the additional giant and Sam who played the voice of the blackboard while lying underneath the stage. The girls had cameo roles as the princess and Mrs. Hank the barber. The Mom was played by yours truly and JT designed, hung and ran the lights. Ben chose to play the role of the narrator and he and directed the show together. So here's your chance to sit back and enjoy the show!

That looks like it was a blast!

Mary, there's someone on the FG BB (Krisaubu)who is asking about GF communion hosts. Connie suggested you might have some insight. Can you help?
