Some Family Fun

Yesterday, Mom and I drove to Beaumont to my brother's house. Left here at 5:40 am, so we could be at his house before 8:30. Then we all headed up the hill to Idyllwild, to see my niece Amy and nephew Eion perform in Twelfth Night. They had been at Shakespeare camp for two weeks and the performance was the culmination of their time there. It was at the Idyllwild School of the Arts, a gorgeous campus nestled in the pines. The stage was in a small hollow, very informal, and very intimate. Amy was Viola, who is also Cesario. Eion was the Sea Captain Antonio, and another smaller part. The dialogue is modified by one of the instructors, but the feel of the play was there. These are a few pictures I took (my brother Chris took over a thousand!). Amy as Viola, Amy as Cesario with Eion as the Sea Captain, Cesario in a duel towards the end, their big brother Patrick and a friend of his, and the three siblings after the play. Lots of driving but well worth it to see them perform, and enjoy doing it. Got back home at about 6 pm.

  1. Sounds like so much fun. Our Amy went to Astro Camp in Idyllwild and loved it. Good thing she didn't know about Shakespeare Camp! She'd have loved that too! (She was in Romeo and Juliet in 4th grade and Southern Utah University Shakespeare festival in high school.)Your niece and nephews definitely look like they belong to your family! What a fun day!
