Well it’s no wonder they had to add shows – What a delightful evening!
My husband and I took our girls, Emma, 6 and Ella, 3 to see the performance and boy did we love it. It was sweet and fun with a sprinkle of nostalgia. The cast was fantastic. I loved Linus and his always emotional monologue about the true meaning of Christmas!
If you’ve never been to the Theatre of Youth, I have to tell you, it is beautiful. It is the perfect size – not a bad seat in the house. Everything about the performance was great – including its length. It ran 45 minutes, followed by a little q & a and fun talk with the cast who let us in on some of the secrets from the show. Both of my girls sat still and watched the entire show – and if you know Ella, you know that is a big deal.
The kids all got to meet be cast and take a photo with them, too!
Bravo to the cast and crew of this version of a true, timeless treasure.
Due to very high demand – they’ve added two more shows! December 9 at 6 p.m. and December 16 at 6 p.m.
