The Mikado Here I Come!

Village Theatre Here I Come!

Now that we're finally in the new place - haven't completely unpacked yet, but still - I'm exciting about seeing The Mikado WITH THE KIDS next week.

A lot of people I know wouldn't dream of taking their 7 year olds to the theatre, but I've never understood why. It really opens up a whole different world to them. All you have to do is teach them how to behave (absolutely NO crinkly candy wrappers!), get them to sit still for an hour (potty break during intermission) and come back to the story for another 45 minutes or so.

We've been taking our kids to the theatre since they were still in diapers (age-appropriate, of course), so they're probably more used to it then some other kids, but if your child sit memorized by a lame TV show (directed towards the lowest common denominator) for what seems like forever, they can sit through some cultured entertainment once in a while, right?

I'm not a big G&S (Gilbert & Sullivan) fan, but my family loves it, and I'm excited about seeing my very first show at the Village Theatre. Tickets are reasonably priced - come join us!

Have fun! It is a great show with lots of action and colorful costumes. For 7 year olders give them a run down of the story and what makes a musical different from a play. There are lots of spoofs and silly actions which the kids will enjoy.

Thanks Nancy! My kids (believe it or not) have been seeing live theatre for the past few years, and the Mikado is their favorite G&S show ... they've seen it twice already, but this is our first Role Players show!
