Day Trip

This past Thursday my dad and I took a day trip to Sight and Sound Theater to see their play Moses. I had seen the show before but it was Dad's first time. I gave a review of it in my post from March so I won't repeat that. I will say, however that live theater is worth seeing twice before you notice different things, a line in a song, a set piece,  or a character that stands out more the second time around. This time I was sitting in a different part of the theater, an aisle seat, which at Sight and Sound is special because the actors and live animals walk through them.

Well, the strip of cloth representing  the Nile River was running through the center aisle and kept flopping up and smacking my dad's shoulder. At intermission, a man in our row joked that he was worried Dad would drown.  Talk about immersive theater!

After the show, my friend that works at the theater took us backstage, which is always very exciting. We got to see some of the sets up close and meet some of the crew.  Then we headed off to Quips Pub and had amazing fish and chips and wings! 

It was a great day excursion, the rainstorm not withstanding.

  1. Sounds like a really fun trip! It is always so cool to get VIP treatment from friends, especially at the theater!

    1. It is! It's such a different perspective.
