The holidays are a great time to get the family together, young and old, to see a show. In past years, we've seen "The Nutcracker," "A Christmas Carol," and "Peter Pan." Each year, as the girls get older, they are better able to enjoy these performances and less likely to cause a disturbance.
This year, we were lucky enough to see "The Sound of Music" playing at Drury Lane, "White Christmas" at the Marriott Theatre, and "Fiddler on the Roof" at the Auditorium Theatre. They were all fantastic shows, and each offered a great learning opportunity for the girls. Not only do they get to see marvelous singing and dancing, but they are introduced to classic songs and melodies and are also exposed to important eras in history.
The themes that come up are ones that we would not normallly discuss at home--nuns, World War II, Nazis, matchmakers and more. But the more they know about the world we live in, the better prepared they'll be for the future.
Take your kids to see a show--expand their world to experience music, song, dance, and life.
