Last week I discovered the COOLEST theater for Ruby to visit: Alliance's Theater for the Very Young. I've take the kids to the High Museum once or twice when they were younger, but we've never attended Alliance, and I never knew this particular opportunity existed.
I chose to take Ruby during the Eric Carle production. Tickets for Ruby, Lehr and I were only $20 total, so it was a no-brainer. The performers consisted of two dancers and one musician. They acted, danced and sang out movements and sounds of each animal from head to toe (just like the book). The kids could participate if they wanted; it was very laid back. We will definitely be going back!
