    Dreams do not come true just because you dream them. It's hard work that makes things happen.

    I was in Senior Class Play at school and I did not want a main part. Being a minor character was fine for me. It was just fun being part of the whole production. I hope your kid does well.

          What grade is kid? It's customary for the main parts to go to the older kids. If this is first role, then need to pay dues by playing the smaller roles and proving themselves.

                Probably doesn't make you feel better right now, but it's a life lesson. Failure is just as important as success. Kid is learning.

                  Aww. I wonder why they didn't have a play with a lot of speaking parts?

                    Awh, yeah I wonder if the organizers knew there'd be so much interest in a speaking part? Would have been nice to have more opportunities for active parts to include more kids.

                    I agree with Dream tho, that it is just as important to not reach a goal occasionally, as it is to succeed. If there's a lot of continuing interest, some learning about drama and role playing may be good to look into.

                      Been looking for some auditions for our kid to try out for locally. But so far, mostly seems just for teens and adults.
                      Already think kid has moved on, however, to new interests.
