This week I’m keeping my 9-year-old up past bed time.
Wednesday Emma and I are going to see Matilda The Musical which is making it’s premiere in Portland this week! Named TIME Magazine’s #1 Show of the Year, Matilda the Musical will be at the Keller Auditorium from Tuesday, February 28th – Sunday, March 5th.
If you aren’t familiar with the story, Matilda The musical is based on the novel by the best-selling author Roald Dahl (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Fantastic Mr. Fox) It’s the story of an extraordinary girl who dreams of a better life. Matilda is armed with a vivid imagination and a sharp mind and dares to take a stand to change her destiny. It’s the winner of 70 international awards including 4 Tony Awards® and a record-breaking seven Oliver Awards® including Best Musical.
Emma is so excited.
Broadway performances are an amazing experience to take children to – it opens up their natural imagination and lets them see so many different cultures in life. I try to take each one of my children to a performance once a year that I think is one that they will enjoy. Have you been to a Broadway performance recently? Have you ever taken your children?
