We weren't allowed to take any pictures inside the theater, so we got our last shot before we went in. I was disappointed, but not the same reason I was here.
The show was great...fun-filled entertainment from beginning to end. The music was upbeat and grand. Everything you want a musical to be. When we were leaving the show,
I asked the kids what they thought about it.
I asked Huett, "What was your favorite part?"
He said, "Nothing."
I asked Sam, "Did you like it?"
He said, "Nah."
I said, "Ava what was your favorite part?"
She said, "Everything."
That just shows you some of the differences between boys and girls. The boys were ready to go after the first couple of songs. The show held Ava's attention from beginning to end, she even changed her mind about making a bathroom run because the music started playing. At the end of the show, when everyone stands and claps for the cast, Ava sprang to her feet and clapped. She even threw her fist up in the air in some kind of celebratory fashion. She was just so into it! I looked over at Tiffany like, did you just see her do that?
Now, for my take on the experience...theater going with preschoolers. The tickets themselves could have been a lot more, but I had a promotion code to receive 50% off the price. So, that brought the total down to $30 a ticket. That sounds pricey, but you have to think about it like this. There wasn't any great big stands full of merchandise or snacks. There was one small stand selling t-shirts, but we bypassed that. Also, you could bring your own snacks for intermission! My purse was loaded down with some cookies, candy, and drinks. I'm pretty sure I spent less money on this trip than I did our trip to Disney on Ice.It was such a great experience. Maybe Ava will have a future in theater. I just like opening these kind of doors for her. She talked about the show for days. She even sat down at my mom's tiny little kid piano and started playing and singing, "Cruella De-Vil, Cruella De-Vil, if she doesn't scare you nothing will." So cute and priceless!
Wizard of Oz, the musical....here we come in a few weeks!
