He's in! I cannot believe that of the 100+ kids who auditioned, Axel snagged a part as "Gosling" in the upcoming Great Theatre Production of Charlotte's Web.
It's quite a decision to let him be in the play since we do have plane tickets to Florida during that time (bad Mommy not double checking the performance schedule before hours of line-memorization passed). However when I saw his little name on the "Cast List" my heart was so proud of him and happy for him that I sort of decided right then and there that the plane tickets can be moved, we can still go to Florida, but the show MUST GO ON!
I haven't told him yet about his role, he is still under the impression that he will be the pig ("I told them, 'I will be the pig!'.") But I think he'll take nicely to the idea of being a gosling. As long as he can "sign autographs," which is his favorite part of any play, he'll be pleased as a pig in mud. WARNING: His autograph may take up an entire page in your Playbill.
