Just the other night Mia and I were curled in bed watching as Fern strolled Wilbur through the countryside singing the ever-enchanting “There Must Be Something More.” Mia and I hummed along trying to hit the high notes. Cuddled together, I think we both sort of knew the feeling Fern was experiencing for Wilbur and vice versa. (Sorry for the mush, but this movie really turns on my emotions.)
Sharing classic movies with your child is great, but nothing compares to watching your favorite characters come to life on stage. The Orlando Repertory Theatre performs countless classics throughout the year along with a variety of other shows. Lucky for Mia and I, they will be performing Charlotte’s Web September 12 – October 11. Hooray!
Even better news… My friends at the Repertory Theatre would like to give one Mamma Mia reader tickets to experience the magic of Charlotte’s Web on the date and time of their choice! (Excluding Sept. 26)
Click here to enter the giveaway! Be sure to include your contact information in the email. The winner will be notified next Wednesday, September 2. (show times are Saturdays at 11am and 4pm and Sundays at 2 and 5pm)
Wait theres more! (In true Mamma Mia fashion)
As an added bonus, the theatre is hosting an Opening Day Bash! The event will take place after the 11 am and 4 pm performances on Saturday, September 12. Take the family to the “county fair” in honor of Charlotte’s Web, and enjoy face painting, cotton candy, bounce houses, arts, crafts and other activities. You will receive your Bash voucher when you pick up your tickets for either of the opening day performances.
We are fortunate here in Orlando to have the Orlando Repertory Theatre who has a mission to inspire new connections between children, adults, parents and educators through the shared experience of art and literature as theatre.
Not in Orlando and looking to expose your kids to the amazing world of theatre? There are tons of theatre groups and facilities around the globe. I’d be willing to bet there’s one or two in your town! Look for resources at your local library, community theatre or Chamber of Commerce.
