I've seen many cool things on my school visits, but I've never had a dinner theater. On a recent trip to Virginia, the 1st graders at Ashby Lee Elementary put together an amazing spectacle of drama, humor and rock. There were sets, props and costumes. Local dignitaries were invited to dine on Baghead, Punk Farm and Slug themed foods, while mini productions based on my books unfolded from every corner of the room. I had a tear in my eye, it was very moving - and hilarious. Some of those kids have bright futures in Hollywood.
They even made me wear a crown and a sash. I can't say I've ever worn a sash before. Here I am practicing my wave.
