I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Theater Thursday - Sleepover

What: Sleepover

Where: TADA Youth Theater Online www.youtube.com/watch?v=rHrqJTIALTs&t=2s

Mom's view: In addition to their other online activities, which we discussed in a previous post (Theater Thursday - TADA Youth Theater Online), TADA Youth Theater recently started releasing full video's of some of their previous shows on their YouTube channel. Each show will be offered for a limited time, and each time a show is taken off YouTube another will be be offered. The first show available is Sleepover.This show is a little different than the group's usual musicals which generally teach a lesson of some sort. This musical is just pure fun.  It really captures the experience of the sleepover ritual and the fun of being young and carefree and spending a night hanging out with your friends. It is full of breezy upbeat songs and energetic dances.

Two performances of the show are available through the same link. Unless you know a young cast member who is only in the first performance, we would recommend skipping forward to the second performance. The first was filmed entirely from the back of the auditorium without any zooming in or closeups so you can't really see the performers faces which makes it hard to keep track of  the characters in the show.

And that's our view.

The next show up will be Odd Day Rain, a show which has suddenly became very timely due to its plot which revolves around a group of people who are forced to live indoors. For our original review of the show go to Theater Thursday: Odd Day Rain.

Tune in Sunday for this week's Sunday Scoop.

Stay well! Stay safe!
