My Son the (High School) Musical Star

Oliver!Image via WikipediaCory will be performing in the school musical in November. They're doing Oliver!, which I've never seen. I don't even know the story. Is that bad? All I know is that Cory is playing Bill Sikes, he gets to kill someone, and in the end (*Spoiler Alert!*) he dies.

He also gets to sing. He wasn't completely sure about going out for the musical because of the singing, but he did because he loves the acting. Besides, he's always going around here singing songs from musicals - currently it's The Producers, and before that it was Sweeney Todd. So, he tried out, and the choir teacher told him he can sing. She ought to know, right?

I'm going to have to read this just to find out what the musical is about, and maybe I'll request the movie from the library, too so we can watch it ahead of time. Of course, since Jeffrey is planning to run the sound, and Cory is in the musical, I will get to see it at least four times by the time we're finished.
