A Midsummer Night's Dream

We were back in Schiller Park in late July for another theater experience.  This time in the evening and this time it was Shakespeare! PK1 likes Shakespeare quite a bit and this time the play was A Midsummer Nights Dream.  I never loved that play until studying it last year with PK1.  She really sold me on it and she brought her favorite book about it.

They used puppets for the fairies instead of actors. It sounded weird at first, but the puppets were pretty cool. And a friend of ours played Peas Blossom (the green one), one of the puppet/fairies.

The best part, besides the insanely good weather and all the snacks PD kept buying us, was listening to PK1 laugh at all the right parts. I LOVE that kid.  She almost wet her pants because she didn't want to miss a second of the show to go to the bathroom.

The whole family.  Of course, I am in that same shirt again. It is a really great shirt because it is light and summery, but keeps you a little covered up on a cool night.

Hey...nothing like a go-to shirt! I love that PK1 is into exciting. That is too cute how she encouraged you about the play too...little teachers.
