LOL at So. Limington Baptist

Feb 27 2017

My middle school juggling troupe, LOL, had a show a while ago at So. Limington Baptist Church.  Prior to the show, the church hosted a spaghetti dinner, and the entire LOL team and their parents were invited to join them for,the meal.  It was a perfect New England church dinner.  It was in the basement of the church with more people than space, and lots of friendly chatter.  Then we were all sent upstairs for a show.

It was a pleasant surprise that our jugglers were not the only entertainment.  Four teens from the local high school's select choir were there to sing a few pieces.  They opened with "Puttin' on the Ritz".  They sang again during the offering, and finally in closing.  Though I don't remember the sequence, the songs included: "Amazing Grace", "This Little Light of Mine" and other standards.

As for LOL, the kids were certainly challenged for space.  An old New England church, SLBC has a permanent altar rail, an organ and chandeliers, all of which caused the kids to adapt their juggling to the space limitations.  Nonetheless, they did great.  Caleb H did a diabolo orbit around his leg for,the first time ever, machete medley was spot on, and Brianna was perfect with clubs.

Unfortunatley there were a few complications, including horrible feedback and music that didn't load at one point.  None of this was the fault of the kids or the church.  To put a positive spin on this, the kids handled these curveballs perfectly.  And Leah was a Godsend when we realized there could be more music unavailable as the show progressed; thank God for smartphones and teenagers who understand technology better than their teacher.
