Thespians

They may look shy, but these first graders received a school award last month for excellence in the performing arts. (What's that, you say? You recognize a certain adorable Little Bit up there? You certainly do! And I'm going to be waving this picture around saying "I knew it! I knew it all along!" at the Oscars in 20 years when she bags the award for best director...)

Speaking of performing arts, don't miss South Pasadena's 5th graders performing Guys and Dolls this weekend at South Pasadena High School. (1401 Fremont. Look for the signs directing you to the little theater.) 5th grade students from all three elementary schools have joined together to bring us the musical classic.

Several cast members created a flash-mobs around town recently, belting out some of the show's tunes and proving that South Pas kids have more than good grades ... they've got great pipes!

You can see the show tonight at 7:30 and tomorrow at 1:30. Tickets are available at the box office before the show. Click here for more details.

After seeing the flash mob, my first thought was "Take THAT, Justin Bieber!"

No kidding, Judy! Little Bit is not so little anymore, Mommy. She's getting tall!

I'd say she has an even better chance for being named the MVP in the WNBA in 20yrs, imho.

Cafe made me laugh.

Yes, we have a gorgeous (and smart and talented) gazelle child. She's actually bummed she's no longer the tallest in her class another girl is about an inch taller!

Thanks, everyone!

I think that it may be time to give Little Bit a new name since she's towering over her classmates.

Any suggestions?
