Section D (Side Mezzanine)
How was your experience?
The Spreckels Theater is such a beautiful and intimate setting, and the production is wonderful--dancing, costumes, set and live orchestra. My only caution is that my preschool grandchildren did well except for the mice who they found scary. To me the costuming made them appear to be creatures from Avatar or ill-intended sprites from Shakespeare. So either I should have waited for the children to be older---or I wouldn't mind more appealing mouse costumes!
