Jonah's First Dramatic Performance

Jonah recently took an eight week acting class at the North Raleigh Arts and Creative Theatre (NRACT). We weren't really sure what they have been doing during class, but Jonah has obviously enjoyed it. At his last class the week before Christmas, the kids demonstrated what they have been learning which mostly envolved facial expression, body language and stage presence. Jonah said afterward he was a little shy with all the people in the room, but it didn't seem to affect his performance that much.

I recorded most of the performance which was based on a children's book by James Stevenson called "It Could be Worse." The kids chose which book to perform and this was their favorite. You will see why it was Jonah's when you see what parts he plays.

(The following video is over 5 minutes long and Jonah has two parts in it.)
