My daughter was part of the Middlesex Theater Camp show last Friday that presented “Puss in Boots.” In this scene, Tom has inherited the cat, while his sisters have inherited gold and land. He also has a flock of orphans under his guardianship.
Whenever this “lady” in purple opened her mouth to sing, the other actors yelled “No, DON’T SING!” Do you know which one is my daughter?
It seems that the talking Puss really wants to be a musketeer, like those pictured in this photo.
One final note: going to theater camp was a big adventure for my daughter. She was with people that are from different backgrounds than her own. One neat little skit that she put on for open mike (just for the other campers and the counselors) was with one of her friends that she knows from her ballet class. On their own the two made up this skit in which one talks in Ukrainian and the other (my daughter) talks in Hebrew. Neither understand each other, but then they finally figure out that they both know English. I was very proud of her for doing this skit and for telling me about it.

Lovely photos. I think I have spotted her in the second photo.
Is she the one with the blue scarf?
Yes, she had the same costume as last week’s show.
I love the RED Puss and Boots customes! BTW, who’s G6, Leora, who had up the little red lighthouse last week? 🙂
They all seems to be having such a good time.
I feel warm and happy inside by watching.
The more good and inspiring thing we can feed our children with, the better hope I have for a good future for everyone; young and old.
Great shots (I always seem to have trouble with stage shots… the lighting always gives me trouble).
And thanks for remembering who inspired the little red lighthouse shots (though hers were admittedly much better) just last week!!
The King is so handsome! And the cat is soooo cute. 😀
our kids were in many a theater camp when they were younger. They were enthused and ready for the acting challenge. This looks like a fun and special production, and your daughter will have such memories (our daughter still remembers all the colors of Joseph’s Amazing Dreamcoat from their 1999 theater camp, and she is 20 now…)
That’s neat, Ralph. I told her she will remember the songs she worked on memorizing for this play when she is 45 years old.
Your lovely children are certainly having a fun-filled summer Leora! Such wonderful experiences for them.
The soldiers red hats were a perfect choice for RT!
I remembered G6’s post too. I guess Mary didn’t see it because I thought for sure it would be a thumbnail shot this week. 🙂
what an adventure! i’m sure your daughter had a blast. the kids look so cute and seemed to be enjoying:)
How fortunate your children are to be a part of such a wonderful theatrical production! Love the photos ;–)
Hugs and blessings,
What a smile-inducing series of photos!
Aww so cute, great idea!
Leora, you have a very creative daughter. Thanks for the run down of the “Puss in Boots” play. Mrs. Jim could relate to it, she inherited a dog (Katrin on my blog) this year!
i enjoyed the photos…love the red hats and costumes.
What a wonderful experience for your daughter – both the camp itself, and no less importantly the exposure to people and ideas that are new and different.
What a special experience.
One summer we went to the states and put the girls in the public school camp. They did fine. Most snacks were kosher. I had to get them sneakers, since as Israelis of the ’70’s they only had sandals in the summer.
It helped that she went with a friend who also keeps kosher. They explored the campus store and hechkshers together. There was a girl one year older who pointed out some hechkshers to them; they ended up having an interesting discussion about the “triangle K” – who holds by it (not exactly factual, but it was just a discussion).
Wonderful photos. I did not remember the story of Puss n Boots!

BTW – the effect I used on ‘Uncle Peter’s’ photo for summer stock was a cartoon effect from Kodak Gallery software – it’s can be fun
Wonderful camp photos–and I loved the last one in the swimming series :O)
These will be lifetime memories. Thanks for sharing all the red within the story too.
Lots of great reds Leora, these events are always so much fun, I miss them.
I was wondering about that link… that’s not you!

Excellent photos and memories!
Wonderful, wonderful! Your daughter is so lucky to be part of such a glorious cast!
That’s amazing that she made up a skit with her friend and played it out.
This is so cute and ….the little girl in the blue shirt I think…
It’s a green dress, but I think you probably know her face by now.
