This year, my daughter and I have become fans of the Oregon Children's Theater--by "fans," I mean we went to one show and were hooked. The first was Junie B. Jones: The Musical, which I was was not really looking forward to, since I hated reading those books to my daughter (another mom gave me the hint to get the books on audio and that is MUCH better). However, that show was FANTASTIC!
The second show of the season, Geronimo Stilton: Mouse in Space, is currently going and we were able to catch it on opening day. My daughter hasn't yet read any of the Geronimo Stilton books, so I wasn't sure how this would go...but she ended up loving this as well (and she'll be getting a few Geronimo Stilton book for her birthday!). We even ended up sitting next to the author.
Since the theater is in downtown Portland, and I don't take the kids down there too often, it is always a treat for us!
|I made her run laps at the train station to get some energy out before our ride into town!|
|The picture we get every (er, both) times we go to the Children's Theatre|
|So, she REALLY wanted to sit in this chair the last time we came, but there were too many people around.. So, I made sure she got the chance this time!|
|Obligatory Pioneer Courthouse Square picture|
|Yes, she's chasing a pigeon. Actually, I was told that it was THE pigeon--from the Mo Willem's books!|
The next show is Bad Kitty and we're going to bring my son along for the first time for that one...can't wait!
