Ophelia as Toto
We've been talking a lot about theater lately here in Toadsland. Adelaide went to see her mama in the excellent local production of Les Miserables, and read in the program about the possibility of auditioning for future shows. She was most excited about the upcoming production of The Wizard of Oz, though not in the way I expected:
"Ophelia could audition to be Toto!" she exclaimed, then collapsed into giggles as we imagined the following scenarios:
Joel: "The witch would say, 'I'll get you my pretty, and your little dog... er, well, and you're dog, too!"
Aimee: "In the beginning when Almira Gulch takes Toto away from the Gales farm, she'd have to use a Burley."
Adelaide: "When the flying monkeys capture them, there'd be two monkey's struggling to pick her up, and they'd be gesturing off stage, 'More monkeys! We need some more monkeys here!'"
These are essentially fat dog jokes, but Ophelia took them with good humor.
