First Trip to the Theater

We went to the theater yesterday afternoon to experience some of Eric Carle's classic stories live on stage!  Mermaid Theater of Nova Scotia brought blacklight puppet versions of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Brown Bear Brown Bear, and Papa Please Get the Moon For Me to the Walton Arts Center.  The first two stories are some of Luci's favorite books...we read them ALL THE TIME!  In fact Luci was narrating the show to me before the puppets would act it out.  She had a blast.

I apologize for the quality of the pictures ahead of time.  We were in a dark theater balcony and all I had was my phone but I couldn't not document Luci's first live show!!!  So bear with me and here we go...!

Before the show...she was so excited!

Puppeteers showing the audience how the caterpillar eats the fruit.

Luci is transfixed!

Luci at home after the show...she passed out on the way home!  Too much fun!!!
