The magic of the Theatre

Friday night my mom took us to see Cinderella at the local high school. The girls were so excited! They wanted to wear there princess dresses from their cousins wedding and their fancy shoes and necklaces from their birthday party. Even though the show started at their bed time they did great.

I think my favorite part was listening to the words come out of their mouth.



Pretending that Daddy is Prince Charming
"Prince Charming, will you come home with me after the ball?"







Prince Charming



Cinderella- when she came out in her gown Coppelia touches her chest and says "like me"
because they where wearing the same dress.



The Fairy Godmother - They LOVED her dress! The lights bounced off it and the whole room sparkled like a disco ball.



Step sister

step sister and Godmother (the where sisters) and we weren't the only people photographing my children with the characters... they had followers.

Where they really wanted to be... ON STAGE!

The girls could not have been given any more attention by the cast they were in Heaven! When they saw Cinderella leave backstage to the dressing rooms they were so upset. I had to explain to them that it was late even past their bedtime and that Cinderella had to go home and rest her voice and body because she had a show tomorrow night.

That got Estee talking. She is my quite one. But she went at it none stop. "Tomorrow?!!! Daddy take me tomorrow, I so excited!" She had the whole date with Daddy planed her head. But we only went the one night, they needed to sleep and they had already met everyone.

Some of my favorite quotes from my little peanut gallery...

During Act I
Estee, "Rella (as she calls her)needs to go to the ball"

When the Stepmother rips Cinderella's dress
Coppelia, "She ripped her dress, she ripped it!" She was so upset she did not want to meet or get her picture with the stepmother.

When the carriage appears
Coppelia, "Thats pretty nice"

When Prince Charming and Cinderella kiss
Coppelia, "WOW" she then stands up on her chair and starts clapping.

Coppelia also was dancing in front of her seat at the end and was trying to take a bow when Cinderella took hers.
