An actress lives among us...

Well, Megan was in a play at school June 4th. She played Christina in the school production of "Grammar Gulch". It was a cute little play about a town in the old west named Grammar Gulch--they practice very proper grammar -- that is until Dirty Dan and the other Outlaws escape from jail and start stealing their verbs. Dirty Dan and his men use improper English, and are the enemy of proper English. When they steal all the verbs, leaving the class with only nouns, pronouns, adjectives and adverbs, the class is helpless. Verbs do all the work. Take all the action. Looks mighty bad for Grammar Gulch!

Hold on! One enterprising student has her own box of verbs. She will let the class use some of her verbs if the class will let her go after Dirty Dan and his band of improper speakers. No! To dangerous. Her friends volunteer to go with her. Okay! Off they go.

Sheriff Noun and his deputies appear. They learn of the dastardly deed. They go in pursuit. The sheriff and his deputies, the student and her friend save the day and restore verbs to the town. All is well in Grammar Gulch.

It was all very cute. She was super at it. Even still she is reciting the entire play. I hope she learned a few English tips that will carry her thru life. I only wish I had brought a camera with a charged battery, I only got 2 pictures. DARN!

This picture is blurry but I will post it anyhow... Maybe I can come up with something a little more clear.
