Theresa's Mixed Nuts: Sleeping Beauty

Sleeping Beauty

If you are a regular here, you know that my family loves live theater. Normally, we only go to the big name Broadway shows when they come to town. Those tickets can get quite expensive, and we usually end up paying $300 for the 4 of us to attend one show. That means we only get to go about once a year. There is a smaller theater in the next town over that holds many plays put on by the locals. We heard they were going to be performing Sleeping Beauty, and decided to give it a shot.


The tickets only ran $70 total, which seemed like a real bargain! However, I think you get what you pay for in this case. I think the oldest actor was 15, which was not mentioned before purchasing the tickets. The acting was good, though. I was surprised that none of the children missed a line. They had a few special effects that were cool, and the girls seem to enjoy it.

I don't know if we will go to a lot of the local shows, but it's definitely something I would consider going to a few times a year.

Have you checked out your local theater? What are some good shows you have seen there?

  2. I've seen shows at the local theater, but we've never gone. Could be worth checking out for the kids. Thanks for the FYI.

  6. We have gone, but it's been awhile. Isaak just went to a play for his preschool. My husband hated it. I'm like you, I love the big productions.

    This summer my kids are taking an acting class.

  7. It is great that you have a local theater near to you Theresa. Unfortunately I live in a rural area with no theater nearby.

  9. Of course a local theater lacks the Broadway glamour and will never be able match that, no matter how talented the (kids)actors might be. Still, the tickets were $70 bucks and you've got a good dose of entertainment so I think you've kind of scored it :)
    Thanks so much for linking up to my hop, it was a nice surprise to see your post over there. I'm looking forward to see them again, on the next Monday's hop.

    Till then, hugs and "see" you soon, most likely tomorrow :)

  10. Αlгeаdy rumοгed to hаve bеen with Butler's love child the pair sure do make a stir everywhere they turn up. A friend of mine told me he lost a job because he was insisting to shake hands with the interviewer (lady) where it is completely not acceptable in her culture. So, the next time you will go outside to buy a perfume for yourself, buy a unisex perfume and I am quite sure that you won't rеgret yοur deсisіon.

  11. I love little shows like that. It's nice because it's cheaper and because I can take my kids there and it's ok if they make some occasional noise.

  12. For $12 a ticket, our local high school puts on professional quality shows. It amazes me to see such quality productions from a high school; however, this well known theatrical arts teacher has quite a reputation. In fact, Chris Parnell (Saturday Night Live) and Missi Pyle got their starts there.

    1. I have often thought about going to the local high school to check out their plays. Glad to hear they are really good. I think we will take our kids to the next one and see how we like it :)

  13. Phantom of the Opera is coming to town!! I'm so excited and told hubs we have to catch that one! We watched our first PTTO performance in London and can't get over it. I hope the S'pore show will be just as great.

  14. I've been to a couple local theatres in town, and they were actually really good! But they also consist of many different ages, not just teens. But that's awesome to hear it was still good, because there are definitely some talented youth in theatre and it's always great to watch them on stage :)

  15. The only live performances Elliott has ever been to were ones put on at his school. He goes to a K-12 school, so this year they get to see the high school play for free during the school day. He's pretty excited about that. Kindergarten doesn't get to go, but all the rest of the elementary does.

    There is a theater in Minot, but we've never been. My husband isn't really interested in going, and until recently Elliott had never shown any interest either. I guess I'll talk to him about it again after the high school play. :)

  17. There are all sorts of local theater companies around my area and my hubby and I have checked out a few shows, but never any with the kids. I like local theater, although I have never seen one acted by all kids like that.
