Review with Sea Witch

Little Mermaid and Ursula the 14-headed Sea Witch

Little Mermaid and Ursula the 14-headed Sea Witch


Last week my daughter (see green arrow) was one of the 14 heads of Ursula the sea witch in the Middlesex Theater Camp production of the Little Mermaid. The main mermaid was played by a teen who went to school with my middle son, so we “sort of” knew her (at least my daughter and middle son know her). Tomorrow is the final production of my daughter’s summer; they are putting on Willie Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. My daughter is one of Veruca Salt’s sisters. She needs to act snotty and rich and put on a British accent. Veruca is played by our friend’s daughter, so that’s exciting, too.

I intended to post some photos of our trip to Princeton, New Jersey, but that didn’t happen this week. So coming up… at least a post or two about architecture and art in Princeton.

    Thanks for the link. Very interesting posts–I’ve read all of them now! Interesting idea that exposing flaws helps with blogging. Just as well, I suppose, since being perfect is impossible (and not very interesting anyway). Even Martha Stewart–famous for doing things perfectly–ended up being more likable after her stretch in prison.

    With an electric waffle iron, making homemade waffles is almost as easy as putting frozen waffles into the toaster oven… :-)

    Thanks for the link, and Shabbat Shalom!

    Thoroughly enjoyed this post, Leora. That picture of your daughter is adorable. I very much enjoyed reading the article on Jewish/Muslim co-existance. Anyone with any knowledge of history and reads critically and thinks about what they are reading in terms of today’s world would HAVE to know that co-existance was, indeed, a myth. The article is right in line with some reading I was doing on seven myths of Catholic history. One chapter was set in Spain.

      Glad you read that article! I suppose modern people create fictitious history because they want so much to believe the world could be a certain way… but that belief itself could be dangerous, if one avoids confronting problems.
