I Had a Good Day!
by Dedalus

Hi. This is Julia Rudy again. I’m four-and-a-half now. My Daddy took me to see this play about this boy who is having a really bad day. It was a really good day for me, though. I got to help my Daddy take tickets and give out programs, and there was even a little girl who was littler than me who crying and didn’t want to go in, so I hugged her and took her hand and walked her in so she would feel better, but she and her Mommy left anyway and that made me a little sad. Daddy said I turned from a Princess into a Devil-Spawn (whatever that means) in less time than it takes Moe Doodle of the Doodlebops to pull the red velvety rope. But, when the play started, I got to sit in the back row on my Daddy’s shoulders for the whole play, and I always like sitting on my Daddy’s shoulders.

Anyway, I really liked this play, especially the part where the girl pretends to be a kitchen sink and the song about shoes that had all the sparkly lights twirling around and the boy’s railroad pajamas and giving everyone a high five after the play was over and my Daddy buying the book for me and reading it to me and seeing this play made it a really wonderful awesome very good not bad day!

-- Julia Rudy

Daddy’s Note – this production deserves commendation for how well director Clint Thornton choreographed numerous scene changes into the structure of the play itself, making them part of the show. The entire cast was good, and, anytime Julia likes a play (she does get easily distracted), something is obviously being done right.
