New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - March 29, 1995, New Braunfels, Texas 6 AlHeraldZeitunglWednesday March RALDZEITUNG UL JH Arts Entertainment Elizabeth Elliott Surprise Working with these kids is a pleasure Miracles DO happen You can proceed with dread towards working with a large cast TWENTY of whom are children and have the happiest of the kids are all NICE And lets not pretend I dont have the right to be incredulous The press on juveniles these days is not exactly flattering But wonder of wonders every single young person in ORPHANS ON THE GUADALUPE is respectful and wellbehaved and has definitely spoiled me for any future encounters with the small childkind Ill expect ALL of them to be this way from now on Maybe Thats The Secret To expect the best of them I mean Not to accept anything less than the best they can give For a minute there you thought Id mellowed didnt you Well I have in a way but every kid in ORPHANS can tell you Im demanding and make no apologies for it And they meet those demands Maybe not at the first go but sooner or soon er When it turns into I confess I become a nag Thats when the kids silently change their usual name for me Mrs E for the one I inadvertently gave them One day in the course of explaining to them that frequent corrections for the same error left me frustrated I playfully told them that it turned me into a grumpy old and that it didnt feel good so would they please try to fix things by the second or third time at Thanks to the sweetest most direct little boy Ive ever met we now have an ongoing game Id told them from day one that being demanding of them didnt mean that we were annoyed And naturally one expects every pearl of wisdom to be remembered right seems we remember the most recent bits of information so when I asked them the other day what Mrs E was being and expected to hear darling 6yearold Austin Smith eager to give the right answer bright ly asked A grumpy old bear Needless to say we all fell on the floor laughing Other Jewels Besides the beautiful little boy above there are other charmers in the wee world Prepar ing the Christmas scene for the first time a few weeks ago the cast was required to sing Silent Night in German They were a little weak being too tentative with the foreign words but one strong clear voice stood out above the rest It was a very rich mature sound but knowing all the adults onstage I didnt recognize it as belonging to them I was beginning to think one of the older teenagers had really blossomed vocally while I wasnt looking But as they reached the second to last line that goes a little high on the end note the owner of the voice felt impelled to crescendo the last words and I finally found the source of all that vocal power The tiniest child of all a porcelain doll of a little girl by the name of Kori Athas had drowned out a stage full of actors Shes only 7 but believe me youre going to hear from her someday And Thats Not All There are a good deal more stories I could tell about the unique delight of producing this heritage play Maybe Ill save them for a poem or two or better yet tuck them away in my journal to smile at one day years from now when the grumpy old bear doesnt have a growl left in her Elizabeth Elliott is a guest columnist for the HeraldZeitung writing on the arts and Jaguar Jamboree exposes students to other
