Two lines in Act Two, that’s all I get…
She treats us like five-year-olds and…
how can you remember all those steps
or carry high notes?
In the film they look cool but we are too giggly.
There’s no way I’ll learn that
when I’m not even in it!
So the squeaks and squeals thrill on…
Teenage acne and tantrum
hidden by make-up and costume measurements.
Toothless smiles and furtive chortles.
Each one the greatest star of the stage
in parents’ brimful eyes.
