Isobelle is 22 months & is in her 1st nursery Christmas play next Friday. I think it's only singing songs with actions. She loves singing & sings about 90% of the time (songs run into each other) but rarely sings along to music or with me but apparently she has been joining in with actions.
Anyway, my question is do I let her know that I'm there watching her in the audience as I'm worried that she'll want to come & sit with me rather than joining in at all. I think that even if I wave at her she won't stay where she is. I might be wrong as it'll be my 1st experience of this but I'd like to watch her without her knowing I'm there as I think she may join in more.
Please share your experiences, thanks

From a professional point of view. Sometimes with the younger children its best to stay hidden as they tend to see you then want picking up or taking off the stage. You can always take photos of her at the end or sneakily stand to the side and take them, depending on the lighting. With our nativity, we have dipped lighting so the further back you stand, the less likely they are to see you.
Just see how she is, if shes a bit overwhelmed from the start you can always go and get her :-)

Thank you Gemini. Think I will try & stay hidden so I can see her & not the other way round. It's funny, this morning I did my christmas showcase with the children I teach who are 4-6 but I'm not used to being on the other side. Looking forward to it though!
