I had never been to the Shakespeare Theater before. It was awesome. Joshua's teacher prepared the classroom very well for theatre etiquette. This is something we've been really working with the kids with - respecting all parts of a performance/movie/church, not just the parts that interest them. I have brag that they are doing fantastic with this. Or perhaps I'm just perfecting my "mommy glare".
The kids were seated on little mats to watch the performance. I was so proud of them for resisting the urge to touch the characters. The moose got very close to Daniel and he moved from his place on the mat up into my lap.
It was a great play. The people at the theatre were extremely kind to our group. I sent them a nice email thanking them for a wonderful time, since I am the field trip coordinator for Joshua's class.
