Remember that audition that I was pretty stoked about, and never got to do?
Well, when I saw that those poor people perform 2 shows a day except Saturday, and are getting paid like they are performing 3 shows a week, I didn't feel so bad that I didn't even get a CHANCE to audition.
However, when I saw that it was free, I decided to check it out. My girls and I were late for the 1-hour-before-hand-pick-up-of-tickets, so we just stood in line for a LONG half hour in the HOT sun. Just when they were about to completely melt from the heat, we were let in. We sat in the center, 4th row in a decent-size, COOL theatre, and the show began almost immediately.
We munched on goldfish and cinnabon cereal even as the announcement about NO FOOD was made...whoops...sorry...we made sure we didn't make a mess.
It was such a great show. It captured the attention of my very wiggly little one for about a full hour. They advertise that it is only 45 minutes long, so it must have started late, because we weren't out of the theatre until an hour and a half after the supposed start time.
Anyway, it was most entertaining, and the highest quality (especially for the money) children's theatre production I have seen in the city. So, way to go Seussical! If you are in the hood, you should definitely CHECK IT OUT.
