Snack and a show

It’s hard to find an activity that is intellectually stimulating for both a four-year-old and a twenty-six-year-old.  So far, we’ve had good luck with theatre performances.

Kiddo: “I loved it. I liked the ballerinas, and Ruby!”

Mama: I was pretty bored. It was definitely kid friendly and the kiddo loved it. The intermission was too long for my daughter and a few other lil ones around us, things got restless and cranky. Snacks were on sale but I didn’t see anyone get scolded for bringing in their own food, there are also little fold out tables if needed.

Kiddo:

“It was pretty good. When the soldiers brought that guy to jail was my favourite. The songs were good,” she starts to sing, “Have you heard, have you heard? What’s the word? What’s the word?”

​Mama:

​Also singing, “News has come from Rome, news has come from Rome!” The songs were catchy enough to keep us both entertained. This story also had a political message. Ya, my four-year-old didn’t get it, but the songs kept her happy.

Kiddo:

​“Getting the cupcake was the very best part. And getting the doll was very, very best part. When she took all the cupcakes was good in the play. The other part I liked was when she turned pink, like, Pinkalicious!”

​Mama:

​I really enjoyed the subplot about how it’s OK for males to enjoy the colour pink.
