IT’S A WRAP …

                   

Tomorrow , Jaz and I conclude the run of our exciting edutainment programme , which has been running for the past 3 weeks , in the open-air amphitheatre at our local Botanical Gardens .

For those of you who missed it , you can read more about the show by clicking on http://writer-in-transit.co.za/exciting-edutainment-programme/

We've had loads of fun , and my energy level has been challenged to the max . My physical fitness has definitely risen a notch or two after all the different activities that my poor muscles have been subjected to ! I had to sword fight , fall on the floor , run , dance and sing (yes , at the same time …) , colour-in and make paper boats . In between all this , I had to co-narrate the story , while checking on approximately 20 to 25 kids per show , assisting and encouraging them in their colouring-in activities , paper boat crafting and getting them to dance along with us during the show . Of course , the kids were accompanied by parents/grandparents , but we had to keep them entertained for the 1 hour and 20 minute duration of the show … and kids have a very short attention span …

So tomorrow , we are going to perform a special show for underprivileged kids from different organisations . There will be a mixture of able-bodied and physically challenged kids , while another group will be kids who suffer with life-threatening illnesses/diseases … There will be about 100 kids at tomorrow's show . I'm sure that it's going to be a unique , one-of-its-kind type of a show and I'm looking forward to the challenge !
