High School Musical

Darienne and Micah got their first taste of (live) musical theater tonight, seeing Disney's High School Musical at North Shore Music Theater.
I picked up a couple pair of tickets right behind each other (most shows were sold out) and surprised the kids with them tonight. We got to the theater and Darienne started to see the High School Musical memorabilia, but still didn't really know what we were doing. She pretty much figured it out when we handed our tickets over as we were walking into the "the-t-er". I sat with Darienne through the first half while Micah sat with Cami. They both loved it, and although Micah fell asleep near the end of Act II (the show started at 7:30 pm), Darienne's eyes were glued to the stage the entire time. I looked over a few times and I'm not sure she even blinked... (NSMT is our local regional theater -- if you are in the area and haven't been, go! The place is nothing short of phenomenal. It's theater in-the-round, and they bring in Broadway quality talent -- literally. I think every show we've been to has had actors who have gone on to act on Broadway, as well as actors who are taking a break from Broadway to come back. Quite a legacy.) I'll try to get a picture of the kids with Darienne in her HSM shirt and Micah in his hat posted soon. They're darn cute.
