Rose Hill and Emporia, KS

My two shows today were at opposite extremes of the spectrum in terms of audience and venue, and both were great fun.

This morning in Rose Hill we set up in the corner of the library, and had a small audience. One daycare group arrived early so I sat down and read "Prancing Dancing Lily" to them while we waited for showtime.

Here's a photo with most of the audience, after the show.
This evening in Emporia, I performed in a the Granada Theater, restored to it's original 1930s glory. It was their end of summer celebration. Kids had to read a certain number of hours in order to earn tickets to come to the show! We had a huge crowd! Here's a view from the balcony:

There was a "mosh pit" area down in front, where kids came to run around and dance during much of the show. Here they are for "Reading Makes Me Want to Dance Out Loud."

During the same song - Evalyn is doing her patented "Hyper Dyno" dance!

Whew - it's been a fun day. We are ready for bed, and will be up and at it again in the morning, at Marion!
