Wizard of Oz
Holly sat right by me and said over and over, I know what's going to happen next then acted like it was the first time she saw Dorothy follow the yellow brick road or the Lion ask for courage. She sang all of the songs.....outloud... and laughed at all of the right places and loved it.
Alfie sat on uncle Tru's lap or his daddy's through the entire show. He pointed up at the stars when it got dark and did the sign language for it and food and trees and bird and just about anything on the stage including waving good bye to the scarecrow and blowing him a kiss. He sang "o-e-o"with the witch's henchmen and clapped and sat through this long show with out a fuss.
Wanee ooed and awed over how smart her great grand baby is, how awesome Addison's choreography was (especially the munchkin dance ala Lord Farquat from Shrek with the shoes on their knees), and how delightful and clever the show is and that's with the scenery and effects of the show not yet finished.
To get to Sundance theatre we had to travel by car, shuttle bus and a tractor that pulled up a trailer...then we still had 100 more feet to walk up hill. But it was worth it to be with family, support our Addison, and see some theatre in a beautiful outdoor setting.
It was a good night
