We had 16 kids ranging in age from 4 to 15. 12 were homeschoolers, with a couple of 'ring-ins' brought along to swell the numbers on filming day. The kids have been involved (at various levels) with designing & creating the costumes & props over the last 4 weeks. It's been a great learning experience of both American history and also how movies are made, not to mention the kids getting the opportunity to work as a team.
I can't wait to see the final result - luckily it's supposed to look like a group of kids putting on a backyard play rather than a professional production :)
