However, there was a bit of a battle over protecting her one line.....one of the other little girls beside her started to sing with her when Ellen had her "solo" of Bonjour so it became a duet. Not to be upstaged, Ellen nicely asked the girl why she was singing her line and the girl replied "I want to sing a line too" so Ellen was a little perturbed but decided that was all she could do and wasn't going to cause a problem over it. Her friends thought differently and reclaimed Ellen's turf by telling the girl that she just could not do that! So, Ellen's little voice rang out loud and clear (and by herself) for the play! Oh, the problems of a fifth grader!
This is my personal favorite scene of the play!!!!! Just where does she get that beer drinking skill from?
