MPC Boys One '09 LOTRFOTR Skits

After each breakfast (and at Sunday Chapel) the staff performed a scene from The Fellowship of the Ring. Than someone would talk a bit about how it applied to camp and the rest of life.

This year was very impressive. (Almost) everyone was totally off-book with their lines, and some of the home-made costumes were amazing.

I played the Balrog in the Bridge of Khazad-Dum scene, although I did bear a striking resemblance to Darth Maul. I was off-book. ("Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!!")

The Prologue by Galadriel (Ophelia)

Day Nine: Tue, Aug. 11/09

Day Eight I was off after lunch (my "half-day"). I spent it visiting the Baileys and my nephew, Greg, in Kenora, including supper at Casey's with friends of theirs.

I arrived back the next morning in time to play the Balrog (aka the Barlog) in the Table Talk LOTRFOTR skit after breakfast.
