The bright spotlight shines on Kendall’s face as she looks into the sea of people staring back at her. This is enough to make most people run, but for Kendall this is the moment she’s been waiting for. She grabs the hand of her co-star and starts singing her heart out as she prances around the stage. This is it, her big break. Her wish to be in a production at the Children's Theatre Company has come true. She is Kendall Who in Dr. Seuss' How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Nine-year-old Kendall has always had a passion for the art of acting. Her big personality is full of enthusiasm and positivity. Kendall has been attending performances at the Children’s Theatre Company for the past five years. It comes as no surprise that her wish is to be in a performance at the Children’s Theatre Company.
“Having the productions at the Children's Theatre Company to look forward to has given Kendall a reason to keep going when she is sick. To see her walk out on that stage with a humongous smile brought joy to both of us and maybe a few happy tears, too,” said Kendall’s mom, Kelly. “We’d like to thank Make-A-Wish and CTC for coordinating this once-in-a-lifetime experience for Kendall. It’s a day none of us will ever forget!”
A huge thank you to the Children's Theatre Company and Dr. Seuss Enterprises for their help with Kendall's wish.
