Seems that auditorium is being renovated this summer -- so Shrek is happening 20 miles away -- at the Bettendorf HS auditorium. We couldn't get to the new location in time -- so it was a "Plan B" learning moment. Lilly was very disappointed, but I explained that sometimes, big plans don't work out the way you want....and it's important to be flexible. Lilly and I enjoyed a bonus FREE afternoon...
|One week later -- here we are, setting out on our SECOND attempt to see Shrek. Lilly is taking in her booster seat from the car.|
|BHS has a BEAUTIFUL new auditorium....this was my first time there.|
|We had a few minutes before the show|
|Our seats were excellent. But Lilly needed the booster seat.|
And the costumes were BRILLIANT. When you think of everything they had to make -- 40 Fairytale characters -- it was amazing. Cinderella, Tinkerbell, Peter Pan, Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum -- all of them had beautiful, bright costumes that looked rich and impressive...
|And here's the silver lining to Plan B. BECAUSE this was the final show -- Lilly's ticket was free and I got the special senior rate. So -- the tickets were $0 and $7..(instead of $16 plus $7) --|
