Today is a really Willy Wonka day! My daughter K had her 2nd performance of Willy Wonka this morning and has the last performance of Willy Wonka tonight. I am so impressed with the cast, the backstage crew and all the hard work of the teachers to pull this all together. The performance today was even better than Tuesday night. I am hoping it will be really awesome tonight! Katy doesn't know that her grandmother, aka Nana, is coming in to see it. We decided to surprise her!
This morning I got to see a different side of the play as I helped backstage with keeping the kids in order & quite, getting them on and off stage at the right time, and helping with props. It was fun, but I enjoy sitting back and watching much better.
I may have to help again tonight, but that's ok, they are making a dvd of it. I'm also taking my camera and can hopefully get a good video of her main scene tonight!
Later this afternoon:
So I decided to find a tutorial that will help me recreate the water fountain. I found an article in Smashing Magazine that had water effect tutorials.
So I tried this one, and created the water coming out of the elephant's trunk.

Willy Wonka is OVER!!! Yee haw! I had a ton of fun with it, but I'm glad it's over. K did a great job on her solo. I'm so proud of her. The rest of the cast and crew did a phenomenal job also!
