Today is Day 27 of the March Slice of Life – the daily writing challenge hosted at “Two Writing Teachers”.
Last night we went to see the musical “Wizard of Oz” with my husband’s two daughters and granddaughter. What an amazing show – LOVED it! It was well acted, the songs were wonderful, with gorgeous sets. We had fantastic seats as well – third row!
Knowing this story so well, it was a treat to see and hear the famous scenes and songs.
Dorothy was played by A.J. Bridel, who turned just 21 yesterday. The audience even sang happy birthday to her when she gave her bows at the end. There was a long standing ovation at the end. A special treat was having Dorothy, Glinda and the witch come out after the performance and let people have their pictures with the. Our granddaughter got a group shot – she was excited!
The Dunfield is the new theatre in our city and it has already presented some incredible shows – Les Mis. (my favourit), Peter Pan, Little Mermaid, and lots of others. We will be attending a number of shows this year. Can’t Wait!
That is so fun that your community has such a rich culture of theater! I bet that was a wonderful show to watch, and the other ones sound fabulous as well! Great slice!
Thanks Katy. It was amazing.
I love musical theater! Les Mis is one of my favorites too!. The Wizard of Oz was always required watching as I grew up, so I can imagine how wonderful the show was. The icing on the cake was getting pictures at the end. What a night you had!
For sure Elsie. I am always amazed at the quality of shows at our small theatre. and tickets are under $35!
What a memorable night..great family time. Glad you are sharing the love of theater and music with little people. They will remember it forever.
As I get older I know those are what really count – making memories.
How wonderful to have such a theater in your city, Beverley, and the Wizard of Oz is great magic, isn’t it. Glad it was a good evening.
Thanks Linda. This little theatre is first class!
