Featured Audience Members, Private Show, Show Recap No Comments »
Here we are at the Izzy Room tonight with Audrey, Alan, and myself. Our Fam tonight was Dante and his grandmother Cathy. He loves giraffes and strawberry ice cream.  Cathy’s favorite book to read is the Bible and she loves monkeys. We started with Fam Sing It. A trip to the zoo led to underwater meercats and the fact that they were far happier in a water tank than in a hole in the ground. Action Figures had Alan and Audrey making and fixing shoes in a cobbler’s shop. Alan was arrested for stealing strawberry’s from a farm in Las Vegas with the help of Elmo during Good Cop/Bad Cop. All of the cast along with several volunteers took part in Questions, Only starting at a pizza shop. We closed with Try that on for size with a number of volunteers helping the cast trip the lawn among other tasks.

2015-06-03 19.52.19Its the first Wednesday in June and we were at the Izzy Fund room for our monthly show for the kids. Our FAM was Eden. She is a seventh grader who loves Social Studies. She’s especially interested in Asia. Her dream pet was a Panda/Horse.

Eden was a great help in filling in when we were stuck for the right words in Pillar. During Helping Hands we discovered that combining pets simply involves duct tape. In Good Cop/Bad Cop we found it was hard to get a Canadian criminal to confess to having Thomas Jefferson as your accomplice when committing the crime of eating a hamburger at an amusement park. Sit, Stand, Lie down found Dave unable to bring a train into the station because Candice and Amy wanted to clean and shine the tracks. The Two Headed Monster took Amy around the zoo and showed zebras and why the lions were not going to be able to jump over the shrubs. We had a great round of What are you Doing to wrap up the night before the kids had to.
