The True Story of the Three Little Pigs...free and fantastic!
One of my favorite things to do is to take young people with me to all kinds of different opportunities I can find. It's actually a pretty selfish motive. I love new opportunities...and I love sharing those opportunities with young people. So I grabbed three of my little people friends and we headed to Eastfield College to enjoy the show.
I love anything put on by the Dallas Children's Theater. If you haven't seen any of their plays, I highly recommend you try them out. Their plays are stellar and their actors super-friendly. I'd really like to find out who writes their plays. Each time I go I'm impressed about the values messages they find a way to incorporate, even when they're more hidden in the book. The audience was tasked with becoming the jury so all kids (and adults) of all ages engaged with the legal process. They learned important skills like comparing and contrasting when I asked them what parts of the play were the same as the book and what parts were different. They learned about typical animal behavior through different lines in the play and great values lessons like the importance of hearing both sides of the story before making a judgment.
After each play, the actors always head to the lobby so the kids can get autographs and photos and they stay until every child is gone. Though the kids always love the plays, I believe their favorite part is getting to interact with the actors afterward. The girls are shown with each of their favorite characters. I love a wolf that stays in character to show off his paws for the camera.
Though I'm not sure about cost and who's putting it on, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory will be playing at Eastfield on November 30 and December 1 at 7:30. You might want to check with Eastfield closer to time for more details. As soon as the girls heard "Charlie" was coming next, they immediately asked, "Can we go????" I love it when kids get excited about something other than the daily routine. It's already on my calendar.
If you went last night, share some of your photos with us and tell us which part your child(ren) liked best.
