When I was in high school I took a drama class although the biggest role I ever had was as a "villager" in the Princess Bride. I don't think I even said anything!
One thing we did do though was attend the Seattle Children's Theater workshops and a play. We did some cool improv things as a class and then after the play they talked to us about all the things that went on behind the scenes and answered our questions. The true drama geeks in our class were over the moon!
I believe I've been to one other show at the Seattle Children's Theater, but I can tell you, they always do a wonderfully professional job even if it's called a "children's theater".
This weekend I'm taking my older son to see Harold and the Purple Crayon. We have a copy of a video (and I need to watch it this week as I don't know the storyline!) so he's familiar with it.
I'm pretty sure he's going to love it and I can't wait to tell him we're going to a show in the "big city"! I'll be sure to let you know how it was!
The show runs through the end of October so if you're in the area check it out!
And, I noticed that next spring they'll be performing A Single Shard. I would LOVE to see this one!
I am being provided with free tickets to this show, but my love for theater is all my own!
