Hansel and Gretel

So Miles' class did a play production of "Hansel and Gretel."  We got to watch the performance last night.  It was so delightful.  Miles just loved it, too.  Even though he didn't have a major role, he was totally satisfied with his part and told me that he wanted to do 1,000 plays in his lifetime.

Miles was a bird.  But not just a bird, I guess, the Lead Bird.
So here he is with a few other birds, picking up the crumbs left by Hansel and Gretel.

He had 2 "solo" acts - solo bird acts, I guess.  The first time, he lead Hansel and Gretel to the Witch's Gingerbread house.  The second time, he lead them back to their home.  Both times he lead them on an elaborate path (he told me exactly how he was going to do it, "I go around the table, behind the. . . ") and trilled the entire time.  It was quite adorable - his trill.  

 Here is the entire cast.  :)  So cool that his wonderful teacher does this!  She even did it last year with Miles' 1st grade class.  Amazing.

 This is after the play.  This is how Miles showed the gingerbread house to Hansel and Gretel.

Perfect that he got to play a bird, huh?  It's only his most favorite animal.  :)  At the very end of the performance the kids were all lined up and were to say their name and who they played.  Miles was towards the end and about 17 kids had gone and said, "My name is David and I played the woodcutter," etc.  And what did Miles do?  He just trilled and trilled.  He truly stayed in character!  So funny.  So cute.  So Miles.
