Yesterday, Shire got to have a special date with Mom and Dad to go see CTM's production of "Charlotte's Web." I bought the tickets for the show a couple of months ago, and Shire and I read the book together (yes, she's gotten to the point where she can sit through a chapter book a night with mom!)
The play was in the lower level of the Overture Center, in a little theatre called The Playhouse (appropriately). This area outside was a nice place for kids to run around before having to go sit down in the theatre.
The view from our seats (yes, I snuck a picture after the play was over). The set was really beautiful, with the centerpiece being the large metal web that the actress playing Charlotte hung from and crawled around.
Also, the play was really special because my friend Alex was playing Templeton! We know him both from Ring Game and because he's the drummer in the band that I started a couple of months ago. He was an amazing Templeton--he completely stole the show (as you can imagine).
