Yesterday, I had a “Scared Silly” show at the Council for Aging in Chalmette sponsored by the St. Bernard Parish Library. It was a full, fun crowd. Eliana came with me and dressed in costume as a witch. Here is Eliana posing for pictures with a fan. Too cute!
I told “The House that Witchy Built,” a story I wrote adapted from the Mother Goose story form of “The House that Jack Built.” I also told my perennially popular “The Viper,” the edge-of-your seat and hilariously funny “Ghost of Mabel Gable,” and “Rap, Rap, Rap.”
Don’t you love those orange striped socks? Here I am doing a magic trick with an audience member. I love the spiders hanging from the ceiling!
Eliana helped me perform my original song, “Shake-A-Shake Them Bones.” It was so much fun!
After the show, Eliana changed and chilled out on the front porch swing.
Notice that she still has her witch hat on?! LOL She was so cute.
Thank you to Janet Perez of the St. Bernard Parish Library for inviting me and for taking the great pictures of the show! Another special thank you to Susan at the St. Bernard Parish Council for Aging for lending us their building (the library is still in a post-Katrina temporary space that is much too small).
Thank you to my wonderful audience – all the children, parents and grandparents who attended. We had a blast with creepy sound effects, clapping, singing, dancing, and laughing. I look forward to returning to St. Bernard Parish Library!
Until next time…
