Tea and a show

I took Calvin to see a stage production of Little Women today. We have a great local theater company that focuses on stage productions so that they can be enjoyed by children. We've been attending the children's shows for a couple of years now, but this was the first show we've seen that was aimed at older children, and Calvin loved it. It was almost an hour and a half of show and he loved every minute. In fact, his only disapointment was that it stopped there, because they only did the first half of the book.

During the actor talk-back followin the show, Calvin raised his hand with two questions, one about the props and the other about the time period of the costumes. He spoke loudly and clearly and I was pleased to find that he has none of my reservations about speaking up in a crowd. Then on our way home we talked endlessly about scenes and scenery, about sets, costumes, acting, lines, and all the people who are involved in stage production. And he asked if we could see another play next week. And a musical.

Then we came home and had tea while he wrote about it in his journal.
