Orphans R Us

I was recently enlightened to a new name proposal for our theatre.  One of our teenage actresses joked that we should change our name to Orphans R Us since the vast majority of our productions have been about orphans.  She was absolutely right and made me laugh- we’ve had  Dorothy, Peter Pan, Annie (along with 80+ orphans!), Aladdin, Mary Lennox, and now Oliver & Fagin’s band as our resident orphans. I’m not so sure the name change will be approved by our board of directors, but it was a clever idea nonetheless.

The current orphans are filling the shoes well!  They seem to be enjoying themselves and are certainly working hard.  Watch out, though…  I fear we’ve sent 50 new pickpockets into the world.
