No children allowed under the age of four. I think Grammy and Grandpa had Riley tell her first fib. We told her that IF somebody asked her how old she was to say she was four. She'll be four on the 27th so it's not a big stretch.
She certainly acts much older than four most of the time.
Anyway, she did really well, LOVED the huge dragon at the top of the stage that did in fact move. have bright red eyes and steam coming out of his mouth, at times.
She basically understood the story, liked all the sparklie shoes that Galinda had in her closet, felt sorry for the green girl and could understand why she might get so angry at people.
She was impressed with how big the green witch got at the end of the first half.
She sat between Grandpa and I and didn't squirm. She took in everything she saw and when we were sitting out in the lobby at intermission, having a snack she thought maybe she had seen enough.
It was loud and a lot for a little girl to process.
We decided to call it a night and since it was already 8:30 we went home.
Maybe when she is older she'll get a chance to see the second half of the play.

For now, she's happy.  She got to see a real play with real people, a scary dragon, lots of singing and dancing and a giant moving head of the WIZARD that she didn't like because THAT was really LOUD.


  1. She is so cute. Growing up fast. She will most likely remember that night. My 5 yr old grandson's amazing what he remembers from a few years past.

  2. Great pic of her with the poster.
