How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
I took my kids (7 and 12) and they absolutely loved it. Audience participation was a huge part of this, and it was fantastic to see the kids on stage doing their best to make what they were given work. Hats's off to the leader/M.C. who really provided the coordination and backbone needed to make the show go. He was funny and talented, and apparently a good coach. Some of the kids were funny, some were obviously the "class clown" variety who never seem to do anything that isn't funny, and a couple were clearly into dramatic performance. All in all, we had a fantastic time and we will be back for sure. Adults would enjoy the show, but trust me--bring the kids. You will be glad you did and so will they. One thing that really sucked: the side street next to the theater has restricted parking, no parking between 6-8 PM. Why? I have no clue, but I did was not aware of this because a giant RV was parked on the street a few spots ahead of me and completely blocked the restricted parking sign. I got a $54 parking ticket, and I am fighting it. Best of all, the RV was still there when I got back to my car and *no* he did not have a ticket--but I did. Love that.
