Mr. T finished his latest performance in theater this week. Attack of the Muffin Man was written and directed by their assistant director, and I have to say, it was quite brilliant!
Due to his Mascot schedule Mr. T took a smaller part than normal, but he knocked it out of the park!
I sent a text to a friend of mine with pictures from one of the performances.
He looks really into it.
It’s called ACTING.
I hope Mr. T looks really into it! That’s what was supposed to be happening!
But, my sarcastic comment aside, it is actually a compliment when someone makes a statement like that – it means that Mr. T is doing his job and he is fully immersed in his role!
Now for your viewing pleasure!

Another Proud Mom Moment! As a former high school thespian, I think it is great for young people to take part in high school or other local productions! It builds confidence and boosts esteem.
I can tell from the pictures that he is a natural born actor!
He’s a drama queen, that’s for sure! But it’s been very helpful for him – it does build confidence and boost esteem, and it has helped him with his presentations at school! Thanks ortsofsorts! 🙂
What no video? ; ) I bet you are so proud.
I’m beyond proud – and I like to think that I’m living in the moment, thus no video – but alas, I have 500 more pictures that didn’t get posted, I just have to own up to the fact that it never even dawned on me! LOL.
I love watching kids in drama. I could never do it myself, so I live vicariously through them!
Same here! After church today we stayed for the drama meeting, Mr. T always performs, but I work as a stage hand!
Awww! I was a drama nerd. Mr. T looks great up there– I hope he enjoyed himself.
I love drama nerds! 🙂
Awesome job!! I was never in drama but was friends with all the drama kids in high school. I think it is awesome to be so expressive at that age. Looks like he really has a blast at it too.
He has fun, and it really is a great troupe, the kids are all so different and yet they blend so well when they get on stage!
“He’s really into it.” is a way better piece of feedback than, “wow, he’s really just phoning it in, isn’t he?” 🙂
Mr T looks like he is born to be a star. Well done, him!
Yes, that comment really just cracked me up! And I’m so glad that when Mr. T commits,he commits! 🙂
Nothing beats watching your children not only having fun, but doing so well at something they obviously enjoy. You must be a very proud mum Kate! Well done Mr T xxxx
Thanks Diana! You are right, there is such pleasure in watching our kids – especially when they are enjoying it!
Awh Kate this IS awesome ! What a great pleasure it must have been for him to act and for you to watch him do it. Mr.T is a man of many talents I gather. Congratulations on the successful and wonderful play! ^.^
Hopefully someday we will get to see a small skit video of his play too, so we can enjoy it just as much as you did 🙂
Have a glorious weekend Kate ❤
Have a great weekend yourself! 🙂 And thank you!!
Mr T is good in acting isn’t he? Were you beside him to take these photos? He looks really good 🙂
I was in the front row! 🙂 And he was having fun which makes it even more fun to watch!
This is making me miss the theater! It is such a wonderful place! I am so sure he is loving it!
He’s having a blast!
That looks like so much fun! I was a musical theatre major, so getting to see other people use their obvious gift just makes my heart happy! 😊
Yay!! musical theatre major, now that’s awesome! I love musicals, just love them – and since starting High School, Mr. T hasn’t done a single musical! LOL, Some other activity or such has been in conflict!
Yea, they can be a big commitment for sure. Well, hopefully he’ll have the opportunity snd you can get your fix 😉
He always looks like he is having such a good time!
I’m fortunate that while his is moody, he is much more good natured than sullen!
I think he is having a pretty amazing senior year. You are going to miss him terribly when he goes away to college!
It’s only his junior year, and yes, college is going to be hard, fortunately, even tonight he was discussing college fees and how much he was going to save by attending the Jr College down the street for his Associates degee, which means I get to let go in phases! 🙂
I thought he was a senior, my mistake.
Anyway, I think the phases thing will work better for you. Otherwise you’d have a serious case of T withdrawal.
Wow, this looks like fun!!! So glad Mr. T enjoyed it. I wish I could see it, is it on YouTube or anything? Teaching is a noble calling and he can inspire young people to do anything!!! 🙂
You know, I didn’t even think about recording a small portion of it! I’ll have to do that next time! 🙂
I wish I could see it LIVE!
I made it to two performances, he told me to stay on for the 3rd! LOL. I love his theatre buddies, and I know you feel the same joy watching your kids play and perform and strum! 🙂
That looks like so much fun! I enjoy seeing his acting skills and knowing that he’s having fun up there.
His director sent me an email letting me know how much he has enjoyed Mr. T and watching him grow, and loves how he’s not afraid to put himself out there. Warms my heart!
That is wonderful! What great kuddos!
Mr. T gets around! Glad he had fun. Even better, you had fun watching him having fun. How fun!
hahahahaha Nancy! You hit that one right on the head! It really was fun! 😀
Cool! I admire people when they xan throw themselves into a role and have loads of fun doing so!
He had lots of physical comedy in this role and just nailed it! 🙂
It certainly looks like it! Great pics too, not so easy to capture movements and atmosphere on still photos!
It looks like everyone had a lot of fun! Just the name of the play is funny 🙂
It really was hysterical! There were several nursery tales involved, including the tortoise and the hare running their race in between sets, and the tortoise pretty much stole the show each time he passed!
Congratulations Mr. T! Do you think you’d end up as a theatre actor? 😉
I can’t act at all, but Mr. T sure loves it! And he has from the very beginning! There were a few years that I thought he might take it professional… but no, as much as he loves it, he has other goals (he wants to be a teacher). So, alas, my dream of fame and fortune by association have been set aside!
The title alone sounds like it would be an awesome play!
I am glad Mr. T got so into it 🙂 Those experiences are great to watch, aren’t they?
They really are! And it is such a great group of kids! They all are so very talented!
