Kids ...

I love the way kids phrase things ... today when talking about the directions on a stage - and after covering Stage Right and Stage Left - with my new group of campers, I asked if there were any other directions on the stage and this one adorable little guy said YES, there's also Stage Up and Stage Down. Which is entirely correct, we just say Up Stage and Down Stage. Not only was the phrasing adorable, but he said it with such conviction!!! It was brilliant! Hahaha...

Also ... a wee while back I asked a group of students if they knew what the word status meant - obviously I was relating it to theatre ... but I digress. The answer given back was "like on facebook when you write what you're up too." Hahaha...now they are in fact correct, however, that is not what it means in theatrical terms. :o) Oh kids ... and technology!
