You know you have been at work too much when you have dreams about Dr. Seuss's The Lorax. I worked late again last night, developing a puppet show with 7-13 year olds on The Lorax. I will be the narrator for almost the entire story, and on April 26 we will repeat it over and over again. I may not be able to say anything by the time that production is over! It should be alot of fun. We have great puppets for the Bar-ba-loots, Swomee Swans, and Humming-fish, not to mention a great looking Lorax. And the kids are all very excited to get to chop down the trees and pollute the pond with silly string. In 1 1/2 hours last night we only got through half the play, but I'm hopeful that next week it will all come together like clockwork.
So if you don't know what a Bar-ba-loot is, go find the nearest copy of the Lorax and read it. A very interesting story with valuable lessons about saving our forests.
