We do love High School musicals. And I don't necessarily mean the Disney series that is so popular, although we have enjoyed those too. No, I mean the Spring musicals that most High Schools are putting on this time of year. This is one of the things I missed while we lived in California. The local High Schools here in Utah, at least in my area, do fabulous productions. The kids are really talented and the folks helping with the productions must be too because the end result is just great
So last weekend we went to Showboat. I was torn between it and Peter Pan that the other local High School was doing. I probably should have taken them to Peter Pan but I felt so familiar with it I wanted to see something new. This is my absolute favorite way to expose my kids to theater and teach them how you behave at such an event. The tickets are usually down right cheap ($6 for the kids) so I don't feel so uptight about it being a perfect experience, and the crowd is usually pretty laid back so I don't worry about their behavior being perfect either. Although it was Saturday, they were great companions. Josh stayed home with Dad though. Now I want to call around and see what else is playing at the other local schools!
