That's Weird Grandma TWG Weekly Update

Tonight is the night to share in the magic of That’s Weird, Grandma!

Here are the two new stories going in!


By Natalie Denby
Central School

Now my dears, my children, I will tell you a story.
Twenty years ago, an old man, older than I, lived in thatched hut miles away from the nearest refuge. (takes a sip of water)
He had nothing but this hut, an old phone, and a rocking chair.
Lights up on rocking chair.
He was the secretive type, so no one knew much about him. There were rumours though. Folk said he never left the rocking chair. The chair, my dears, never stopped rocking.
Chair starts rocking.
They said, my dears, the chair was his soul. The flame, the life.
Lights on the chair go out.
But then, my dears, the police received a call from the man.
Sound of phone, ring, ring, sound of rocking.
Rocking was all they heard before the phone went dead.
Dead dialtone.
So the police went to investigate.
Sound of footsteps.
It was silent, was eerie, they had suspected something different.
Sound of rocking.
But they did hear the rocking chair.
Lights up on rocking chair, rocking, with a shadow on it.
There was no one there, but there was a shadow.
Voiceover says “vanished” at the same time as the man.
“Vanished” it hissed. And then we saw two terrified policemen. And a still rocking rocking chair with the shadow of the man.
Lights down on rocking chair.
The police would get eerie calls every so often. And only one word would be uttered,the word
Voiceover says “vanished” at the same time as the man. vanished. And up to this day, the rocking chair has never stopped rocking and the shadow has never disappeared. So, my dears, do you see why I despise rocking chairs and huts, why I stay in the city away from the country? Because I don’t want to vanish.
Lightening strikes.
So dears stick to my advice and you won’t vanish! (Man laughs wickedly) Oh yes,
Voiceover says “vanish” at the same time as the man.
Lights down on man, and he exits.
Lights up on the rocking chair, still rocking.
The End

The Nasty Egg
By Eryion H., Chalmers School of Excellence

One day my dad made breakfast for me and my brother and my step brother and his girlfriend and he made some bacon and boiled eggs. And I didn’t like boiled egg. So me and my brothers waited until the food was done and it was done before they ran to the kitchen I told my brother I don’t like boiled eggs y’all and my borther was we know that so they ran to the kitchen I walk slow because I didn’t like boiled eggs and by the time I got in that kitchen my plate was already ready. So I went to the table and set down and start eating and I said ew and I took about one bite and I chewed it and it was nasty and I only ate my bacon and I was done and I put the eggs in the garbage and my dad looked in the garbage and said who put the egg in the garbage and said who put the egg in the garbage both of my brothers said they didn’t do it. And I said I did it and he took the egg out the garbage and said you fine two eat this egg right now and I said but I don’t like eggs Daddy and he said I don’t give a care and he washed it off and gave it to me and I ate it. THE END


Yoga Class In California
By Maggie S., Avondale-Logandale School

It looks like the people that want to go to yoga class have to go all the way to California by boat from New York. Because all the yoga classes in New York are full. When yoga class is done and they wan go back home the boat drowns with all the people aboard. When the people jump in the water they did not notice the water was magical and can turn them into PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY Fish and at the END they sing Peanut Butter Song.

Say “And I didn’t like boiled egg.” to Ambar at the box office and get discounted tickets!

See you at the show!
