You don't have to pay Broadway prices for quality shows BC (said the veteran of many a community theatre production...)

Did they have a "Meet and Greet" with the cast afterwards? The first little theatre production we took our kids to had that. Our son (about 10 at the time) was asking questions at a mile a minute. He ended up being in several community theatre productions. Like Mother, like Son.

The Pirate's ex takes their seven year old granddaughter to the theatre all the time. This past week she took her to see Lion King at the Opera House. The building was scheduled to be torn down. Then it was rescued and the following renovations are the result.

Wonderful to hear that the philistines have been thwarted again. They wanted to tear down the Palace Theatre in Manchester 30-odd years ago and the locals, supported by a famous (to us) comedian, Ken Dodd, won the day. The theatre was restored and carries on with all sorts of theatrical productions and visiting companies. The Opera House in Manchester was rescued too but the Theatre Royal became a bingo hall and and then a nightclub and is now derelict.

You did a great job. Thanks for sharing.

No meet and greet this time. We occasionally see the BIG shows at one of the larger venues, but this smaller 250 seat theater puts on shows that we end up loving just as much at about a third of the price! This theater is called Raleigh Little Theater, it's been around since the 30's.

Just got back from my first Costco shopping trip. I left with a rotisserie chicken, I don't know why, I don't need a rotisserie chicken. I work in a store that cooks rotisserie chicken everyday...

Found out if you wait too long to defrost your freezer, it takes forever to melt off all the ice. Finally got the job done and now all is well for another year (?).

Well, then you can compare them. Costco makes better tasting rotisserie chicken than I have ever had from a supermarket.
