Mamma Mia and Mini Musicals!

Sunday, April 30th, 2017

HELLO (my name is Elder Price and I would like to share with you the most amazing book… NO LUNA STOP SINGING THE BOOK OF MORMON)

(I’m just warning you now, I’m sorry that some of the pictures are really big and some a bit distorted but it somehow didn’t let me do anything with them and I was just TOO LAZY to find out how or upload them again!) 😉

I wish I had a lot to tell you but honestly, lazy luna is still around!

She has been quite busy and bingewatched all of Lucifer in a very short time and is now bingewatching Sense8 and almost finished as well, although she only started  watching it some days ago… Oops…

But!! When forced to go outside, she still manages to take some nice pictures for her fans (aka family that is reading the blog).

Lazy Luna also went to the cinema again, she just could not help herself because the temptation is just always there now!

But now enough of Lazy Luna! Because as soon as she arrives in school, she turns into Less Lazy Luna!

Rehearsal time!

Less Lazy Luna, while still being quite lazy, actually does stuff every now and then! She sings and dances and acts!

School at the moment mostly means either working on Mamma Mia or on our Mini Musicals (which I chose as a title because it’s a nice alliteration).

EVIL TIME IN OUR MINI MUSICAL

Mamma Mia is definitely going to be fun, although I do have to admit that it is very cheesy and therefore sometimes a bit cringy to act! And in choreographies, I need to learn two parts because I’ll be Rosie in one performance and in the ensemble in the other one, which is quite challenging at times! 🙂

I don’t have any Mamma Mia pictures, sadly, but I made some screenshots (you’ve already seen three of them) from a rehearsal video for our mini musical (that doesn’t have a name yet).

And so I have a bit more to write about, I’ll just tell you what our mini musical is about. We made up the story ourselves, although it is inspired by the Truman Show! In case you didn’t know, I play the evil mother, which is great fun! Here’s the story…

Once upon a time….

There was a girl named Paige. Her whole life was a musical and she sang and danced the whole day. She was very happy.

Mother (me) and Daughter, everyone’s happy!

What she didn’t know, though, was that her life was a tv show! Everyone in her life was an actor: Her boyfriend, her friends, her mother… And most of these actors didn’t even like Paige, they hated their job! But they signed a contract, so they had to stay. On top of that, they were scared of the person controlling the tv show, only known as The Voice.

Annoyed actors!

But Freddie, Paige’s “boyfriend” really loved Paige, so he chose to tell her the truth. Paige was shocked, but still decided to escape to the real world with Freddie. Her mom, Susan (that’s me) was not happy at all with that, though, and tried to stop them from leaving without having to stop the show.

She might even have succeeded but sadly, she started getting into singing her solo way too much, giving Freddie and Paige a chance to escape!

Holding that note for as loong as possible

She then sent the actors to the real world to get Paige back. Paige, meanwhile was shocked at how horrible the real world actually was. Homeless people, smoke, grey sky… The musical world was much better! The actors thought the same, realising that they preferred the fake world. They then lured Paige back by singing and dancing for her. Freddie reluctantly agreed to come back with her because he didn’t want to leave her. But then: Before he could go back, Susan showed up, revealing that she was The Voice, the person that controlled everything!

And she felt that she had to get rid of Freddie because he was the only one that might stop Paige from going back and being happy in the fake world. And because Susan was a very crazy and evil person, she killed Freddie.

EVIL MOTHER (I will have a retractable knife in the actual performance)

Paige witnessed this and was devastated. Susan did not really have any pity with her, though, and told Paige that she should go back and remember that they were still a family and so on. (in song form obviously!)

Paige did go back to the tv show but not willingly which is why Susan had to force her to still sing and dance happily (for example by putting her in handcuffs).

But hey! At least Susan didn’t have to cancel her tv show! And they (mostly meaning Susan) lived happily ever after!

Wait? Where’s the happy end?!

THE END!

Oh and here the picture of the week!

I saw that cute owl in a shop in Sandwich and it immediately reminded me of… MYSELF!

HOLIDAY HAPPINESS

Monday, April 17th, 2017

HELLO

Do you want to know what I did during the last two weeks?

DO YOU?

YEEEEEEEES!

Because I’m not in the mood for a “normal” blog entry (on tuesday I did this, on wednesday this etc.) I’m going to split my holidays in different poems!

HAVE FUN READING THEM! (IF YOU DON’T HAVE FUN WHEN YOU READ THEM WE HAVE A PROBLEM!)

LAZY LUNA

Once upon a time

There was a girl called Lu

She really liked to rhyme

So she shall rhyme for you!

School was really exhausting

So Luna needed rest

She got up late in the morning

And did what she does best:

Sleep and read and watch tv

And sing and write and drink some tea

A 89 days Danish streak

That’s what Lu did for one whole week!

Lazy Luna in her natural environment

THE QUEEN OF STONES

What to do when you’re at the beach?

Swim or eat or write a speech?

“No!” Lu says, “that’s not the way!”

There’s a much better way to spend your day!

First, eat some scones

Then focus on the stones!

Build a tower

Hour after hour

And feel the power

Of the stones!

ANIMALS

Lu went to a magical place

called Kent Life

It was like being in Newt’s case

full of animals and wildlife

There were little lambs and pigs

And goats and owls and chicks

They were all really cute

Especially the goat that really wanted food!

THE WARDROBE

There’s a new friend in Luna’s room

It’s a lovely wardrobe with loads of space

It gives her room a sense of grace

It’s big enough to consume

All of Lu’s clothes and more

And it even has a door!

LONDON

London

Where the Musicals are

Where cars and busses are at war

Where thousands of people live and breathe

Where the underground is full of thieves

That’s where Lu spent a day

Having loads of fun

YAY!

NATURE

The sea is blue

Grass is green

Flowers: Yellow, Purple, Red

But I never knew

 That the sea can be green too

(That’s a lie if you know what I mean

I just needed a rhyme to redeem

my abilities as a poet

Though after this I dread

That my reputation is dead)

CINEMA

Lu loves going to the cinema

And at least twice a month she goes

so she got herself an unlimited card

And can now go as often as she likes

once, twice, a hundred times…

Who knows?

THE SHUNNED PICTURES

“Luna”, some of her pictures said,

“You promised a poem every one of us’d get!”

Luna felt bad

The pictures were mad

So here’s the poem for the lonely pictures on her phone

they’re now really happy cause they know that they are known

PICTURE OF THE WEEK

There are many pictures but one always wins

It’s funny and awesome, the king of the kings

Beautiful, special and really sleek

Yes! It’s the picture of the week!

This water had an important message for me: BE LU! BECAUSE LU IS AWESOME 😉

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MEEEE

Sunday, April 2nd, 2017

HELLOOOOOOOOOOO

Sooo, on the 25th of March, we (Aniela, Fran, Darren, Nora and me) celebrated my birthday with lovely foood, an awesome caaake and Sweeney Todd (because I really wanted to watch a musical!).

I got so many lovely presents, have a look:

On Sunday, it was mother’s day in England, so we went to have lunch, it was really nice!

Monday was extremely exhausting! I had my English speaking exam (which just consisted of me talking about musicals and answering questions about musicals, so it was easy, really.) Then we had our Musical Theatre History Performance which didn’t go that well but now I’m just glad it’s over!

I stayed awake that evening until my birthday officially started!

My birthday was lovely, I got so many lovely messages and presents! I bought the three things I wanted and went to see Beauty and the Beast again in the afternoon! In the evening I had a great dinner with Anieal and Nora and we watched Fantastic Beasts and where to find them!

Theeen on wednesday, we had a performance in the evening (which was our assessment) and I got picked to sing a solo as well (that email was a great birthday present). My solo went really well and the two dances went okay as well. Some of my classmates were very eager to do my make up so I let them and had some fun while taking it off!

On Thursday, I suddenly found myself alone in the bus!

On Friday, I made awesome salad

This weekend, the weather was lovely so Aniela and I went to the clifftop café twice!

We also went to see the bees twice, so here have the picture of the week!

I COULDN’T GET MY HAIR OUT OF MY FACE!
