Stone Soup

Emma's preschool put on a production of Stone Soup. If you are unfamiliar with the story here is a quick summary...
Some travelers come to a village, carrying nothing more than an empty cooking pot. Upon their arrival, the villagers are unwilling to share any of their food stores with the hungry travellers. Then the travelers go to the neck of the stream and fill the pot with water, drop a large stone in it, and place it over a fire. One of the villagers becomes curious and asks what they are doing. The travellers answer that they are making "stone soup", which tastes wonderful, although it still needs a little bit of garnish to improve the flavour, which they are missing. The villager does not mind parting with carrots to help them out, so it gets added to the soup. Another villager walks by, inquiring about the pot, and the travellers again mention their stone soup which has not reached its full potential yet. The villager hands them a little bit of seasoning to help them out. More and more villagers walk by, each adding another ingredient. Finally, a delicious and nourishing pot of soup is enjoyed by all.

Emma and her friend, Ashlyn, were the hungry travelers. Our girl was such a little star! She said her lines loud and clear and wasn't shy in the least. The video below isn't the best and it is about 13 minutes long, but if you want to see her in action you can!
Here are a few pictures from her acting debut.
