Tale as old as time...

I promised a report on my thoughts of the play, so here ya go!
Sunday night I attended "Beauty and the Beast" at the Gammage theatre with some friends. It was my first time getting to see the Gammage (which was quite stunning!), and my first time in a long time seeing a professional production. Suffice to say, I was very pleased! The scenery, costumes, acting, singing, live orchestra - EVERYTHING was beautiful!
We shared a lot of laughs and had a great time.

Being on a practically non-existent, college-student budget, we got the cheapest tickets available ($27), which ended us up in the highest seats available (what a drop!). It was pretty crazy! And even though the actors much resembled ants to us, the show still ROCKED. I can't imagine what it must have been like for the front-row seaters. Still, we had a view that a lot of other people didn't get, which really made me appreciate all the choreography, scene placement, and scene changes. They did great! I would definitely go see another show there if anything comes up that I think I would enjoy.

Outside Temp: 78°F
Countdown till end of school: 46 days! (I'm going to make it!)

Verse of the Day:
Therefore know that the Lord your God, He is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and mercy for a thousand generations with those who love Him and keep His commandments.
Deuteronomy 7:9


  1. Wow, that's a nice theater! I actually like sitting higher up; you can a complete view of the stage, and it gives you an excuse to bring opera glasses. ;)

  2. I wish I did, too. Hmmm . . . I should start scouring the antique shops between now and when we go see The Nutcracker. I should definitely find a pair before I see The Magic Flute for my birthday. Regular binoculars just doesn't seem right . . .

  3. Haha, I don't even have a regular pair of binoculars either! lol.
    What is "The Magic Flute" about?

  4. You know, I'm ashamed to say that I don't exactly know what "The Magic Flute" is about, but it's one of Mozart's more famous operas. I just know most of the songs from it, and some of the characters.
