The Waukesha Civic Theatre, Inc. is a non-profit corporation whose mission is to provide quality live theatre performances and educational opportunities that will enrich, challenge and entertain both participants and audience members.
Nearly six months ago my empty-nesting husband, Ted, and I were catapulted into familiar but difficult roles. The feature? Parenthood, Take 2. The reason? Our son's deployment.
Now, please understand we love these two grandsons, ages 6 and 4, who were entrusted to us; but, after a nice seven-year hiatus from 24/7 parenting, and even longer since having children this young in our constant midst it's been challenging and oftentimes frustrating; because these boys seemingly lack a vital piece of their childhood make-up - imagination! To borrow a line from a song performed in WCT's recent production, Bye, Bye Birdie - what's the matter with kids today?
