Next week (next week! where does the time go?) Rio will be performing as a Munchkin in Somerville High School’s production of the Wizard of Oz, at the Somerville Theater. You can buy tickets online and go see her, along with 30 or so other kids from Somerville’s fine public schools. There are three shows, Thursday night, Friday night and a Saturday matinee.
This whole process has been terrific fun for us. Rio has been captivated by her chance to be in a play, and really engaged and happy. The one friend she started to make at school is in the play with her, so it’s given them a chance to bond and connect, which is great. She’s singing, which she loves, and trying out acting for the first time. All around a win.
