The cast list has gone up and hearts are broken, she only got the role of sheep 2. You would think it was the end of the world for my friends 6 year old daughter, sobbing uncontrollably at the thought of having no other lines than “baaaa baaaaa!” To say at the nativity. I totally get where she’s coming from, it’s the equivalent of being put in goal in football, that you couldn’t fulfill the bigger role (and you’ve got to wear a fluffy rug around you.)
They always say that every role is important, but just remember, this is a cutthroat world and no ‘extra’ has ever received an Oscar!
Approaching my daughters first school show, I’ve got my fingers crossed for the part of Mary, but who knows, maybe she’s destined to be a festive frog or a Yule mule. Have you had any experience of this, good or bad? How did it turn out?
