Flint Academy Presents The Little Mermaid

Friday, March 4, 2016

I wish I could remember exactly word-for-word what our amazing director said to introduce the grammar school play last night, but in a nutshell it was something like: sixteen total hours of rehearsal (instead of the 200 that would typically be put into such a production) plus a full-inclusion cast of ALL the grammar school students- typical, special needs, and advanced- ranging in age from 18 months to thirteen years, plus a faculty and staff who are up for anything and love fostering the arts? Equals this fabulous production of The Little Mermaid that is about to blow your minds!


I might be lounging around all morning, snuggling my baby, drinking tea, and periodically informing anyone who will listen that "The play is over! Hahaha!" But that in no way means it wasn't the best thing ever. It just means that, like everyone else involved in this, I am both totally worn out and totally blissed out from the whole process. 

Regardless of the various behavioral and academic challenges the students were dealing with, the drama team had them memorizing lines, cues, and choreography, and led them into the spotlight where they proceeded to ROCK OUR FACES OFF with their awesomeness. 

Seriously, these babies were amazing! Just look!

(At what I know perfectly well is WAY too many pictures for one blog post, but whatever, I do what I want!)


  1. Wow! That's awesome (and cutest seashell EVER!) You definitely can post as many photos as you want; you all put in enough hard work to show off as much as possible!

  2. I don't think there can ever be too many photos on a blog post! How cute was everyone! You did great.
