The Royalty Players Present - "Esau and Jacob"

After listening to the story of Esau and Jacob one recent afternoon, we decided to give acting a "go" and seriously had a blast doing it! As soon as we get some funding we are hoping to add many more plays to our family's repertoire.

Here Jacob is preparing a hearty stew awaiting his brother's arrival....

And "lickety-sizzle" he hands over the birthright!

Isaac (ahem) doing a pretty believable "dying" performance

Rebekah (notice the flour in her hair.....she insisted it made her look old, you be the judge!) divulging her master plan to Jacob....

Isaac feeling Jacob to see if he is indeed Esau. (Knew those coon-skin caps would come in handy)

And finally Esau's stew is done and presented to his father. (again gotta love those coon-skin caps. The props make the play folks.)

Good ole' Isaac revives upon discovering he had been had, and informs Esau most dramatically I might add, "I ALREADY ATE SOME SOUP!!!"

And then the chase scene! Esau determined to get back at Jacob chases him into the kitchen while Rebekah in the foreground awaits to see whom will slip and wipe-out on the kitchen floor first!

And a good time was had by all......well except maybe Isaac and Esau who were literally "had."
