#100WCGU – Wk99 – Prompt: … the air was expectant… – 104 words – “Play”

30 Jul

The air was expectant as students waited their call. It was time for the annual school play. Rehearsals had gone well. Backdrops had been painted, performance bugs smoothed out (mostly), positions learned, lighting and sound made ready.

An audience of parents and friends had gathered. The cue came. The play began.

Narrators introduced Dorothy and Toto. Somewhere over the rainbow the Munchkins awaited their guest.

The smiles on the audience faces told a story of pride and their enjoyment of an evening brightened by their children. Was the performance perfect? That would spoil the fun.

The air had been expectant and was now fulfilled.

This backdrop artwork was prepared by the children in the play. If you wish to make use of it, please contact me so I can seek permission from the school.
