For Christmas we all took ourselves to Children’s Theatre to see The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. We see the Christmas show every year. It’s fun. Last time we saw Frog and Toad, which was a little slow moving for some of us. It’s big on character development – light on plot. I think those of us who are also light on character prefer the plotty shows.

LWW was not light on action. It was actually pretty scary. A girl behind us really screamed at one point. Luckily the move had been on TV on Christmas night and we all watched it then – I think that helped some of us keep up.

They did a really good job moving between the two worlds in LWW. The White Witch was particularly good – very scary. She even came out during the curtain call glaring at kids in a very scary way. The girls decided that some of the actors were a little over the top. The sounded like Patrick critiquing the show; I suppose that’s good.

After the show we heading to Bonfire Grill on Grand Ave. Kids can make their own pizzas and sundaes – parents do not have to help. The food is good; they even have a full bar. What could be better?
