Borrowed freely from my Facebook feed,
this year's troupe of actors, assembled and actorly.
Laura's first skit was a scene from Finian's Rainbow.
She's the sharecropper there on the right, waiting for the curtain to rise.
Getting "what for" from a very small lass.
The dastardly sheriff and the corrupt senator.
Pay up the taxes or lose the land.
Not enough money!
Saved by leprechaun gold.
And a partnership is formed.
The closing battle. Because there must be a mighty battle at the end.
The airy fairy group on the left; the sturdy peasantry center, the whiny young king and his young mother; the yeomen, and the narrator, center front.
Still looking for Laura.
Looking for grey sneakers.
Ah, ha. Last on the left.
The battle begins. She lays low one sturdy peasant and engages a yeoman.
Still battling the yeoman, heedless of another with a broad sword.
Curtains for Miss Airy Fairy.
The narrator, surveying the carnage.
Nothing to do except pick up the fallen crown and put it on his own head.
Except--the whiny child prince and his young mother only feigned death.
Taking their bows.
Same time, same place, next year.
