Breaking A Leg & The Bank

I encouraged the girls to try out for our local children's theatre Spring production. Even though they have NO acting experience and Lula barely makes the age cutoff, I was pretty sure they would be awarded the lead roles after their audition.

I happily accepted when they were cast as part of the "ensemble". (Happily accepted like the Toddlers & Tiaras moms do when their kids fail to make the final crowning.)

After the first rehearsal, I was given the lists of parent responsibilities. The parent responsibilities included:

Tuition *cough, cough, choke, gag, gasp, cough*

30 Volunteer Hours

Retaining a sponsor

Selling Tickets (to our friends and family v. just at a booth or window)

Here's the kicker - I have to work the snack bar as part of my volunteer hours and today I found out that in addition to taking the money and making change I'm supposed to provide HOMEMADE BAKE SALE ITEMS to sell as well. I have THREE snack bar shifts.

You're a better mom than I.

By my calculation, everything, save volunteer hours, revolves around money.

Are you sure this isn't some pyramid scheme for parents with stars in their eyes?

Can't you hang up a sheet between the living room and dining room, and say "hey kids, let's put on a show!"?

Yikes! Hopefully, you get a chance to actually enjoy the performance.
