He had a big speech to say in the beginning and he was battling stage fight at his practices. I reassured him if anyone in the world could help him with that problem, it was his theatre teacher mother! We worked hard on memorizing it, speaking loud, adding arm movements, smiling and looking up, and overall just gaining confidence. He did such a great job!
Chloe entertained us while we waited throughout the day for different events:
And in the end she helped celebrate her brother's success!
I am so thrilled this was such a positive experience for him. Afterwards his confidence level was through the roof. For the rest of the day he kept reciting his monologue for us, and let us know any time we wanted to hear it in the future, he would be happy to perform. GO CHASE!!!!
