We had tickets for several different shows at the Children's Theater of Charlotte during the 08-09 season. Tonight was our last show. Gloria really enjoys "going to a show" and anticipates each one for days and weeks before hand. Tonight's show was a musical adaptation of "Alice in Wonderland." This is not a familiar story for my little book worm and I didn't know what to expect. It was different, but we enjoyed it.
Glo is always very attentive during a show, noticing little details that might escape most of us. Actually, she is this way about most every thing. Tonight was no exception. In the middle of one of the songs, she leaned over and told me that Alice had on the same shoes that Maggee bought her. Of course that meant I had to study Alice's shoes--no easy feat when she was dancing and moving all over the stage. But, sure enough, Gloria was right.
I really had to laugh, though, when she informed me that she recognized two actors from the show we saw in February and another one from last fall! How can she remember them when we have seen so many productions and the costumes and characters have all been so dramatically different??? I had to check the program, and she was right on all counts. Her memory amazes me sometimes! Tonight was no exception.
