Today's show was Alladin.
My kids are surprised that the story was not very much like the movie at all - which really built on previous discussions we have had about this. I love seeing different versions of stories, and if think they are seeing the value in it too.
The actors were amazing. Three of them did the entire show.
This show had a great lesson. The children learned a song in music class. It had a marvellous message:
Desire is a very complicated thing. You need to be careful about what you wish for. The play talked about how what you need is often very different from what you want, and that perhaps sometimes we need to re-think the things we think we want.
All in all, a marvellous afternoon!! We ended up re-scheduling everything else we had in the afternoon to talk about the play, laugh about the funny parts, and record all we could in our journals. It was time well spent!
