Our FIRST IIE Variety Show!
Day One of IIE ended with our first ever inter-island variety show! After the overwhelming success of our "Monhegan's Got Talent" variety show last spring I knew we were going to have to do something similar at IIE and thank goodness we did because it was one of the highlights of the two day event. I think it may have tied with Capture the Flag... which is pretty remarkable.
The show was kicked off by the teachers doing the infamous "banana pudding skit". The Monhegan School did this skit two years ago at an improv night we hosted at our school and let me just say it is laugh out loud funny and the teachers were just a riot (especially newbie Mr. Duncan from Matinicus! Who knew how fabulous he is at improv!?)
Time for the youngers to dazzle us with a number song!
Islesford school wowing the crowd with their singing talent.
We were SO lucky that the famous "Flash Mob" made an appearence and showed the kids how to bust a move, Micheal Jackson style!
And a surprise performance by a very talented Frenchboro pianist!
Some Matinicus joke tellers!
And then of course Monhegan... we our well known "Little People Skit". It was disgusting and hilarious all at the same time.
If you want to see us in all our glory watch the video here:
By the end of the night everyone had a talent and there were a lot of impromptu acts like the "belly roller" and the dangerous "Bible Jumpers!" (You just had to be there for that one!)
Oh, and did I mention that we had judges!? We did. They were fabulous and gave out the awards after a pretty entertaining evening.
Flash Mob received their own personal award for being so dang awesome!
The teachers won an award to for their silly skit... I was the director so I got to hold the special award!
After the fabulous chaos of the evening our dear friend Mike came to lead the group in a quiet meditation so we would be relaxed as we
to bed for the night.
It was the perfect end to the perfect day.
