goodnight moon, the musical!


one of my favorite books to read is goodnight moon by margaret wise brown.  you can imagine, then, how excited i was to learn that the chicago children's theatre had turned the book into a musical. 

if you recall, i attended another play at the chicago children's theatre in the spring, and it was a big hit with tate and lilianna.  now i am thrilled to be attending this play with lilianna, tate and tessa. 

i love to give as much "culture" as i can to the kids as often as i can, and i love how the chicago children's theatre caters to kids without dumbing things down for them.  they provide a very kid-friendly environment, without treating the kids like they need a lot of glitz and glamor to be impressed.

as if that weren't enough, the theatre is collecting new pajamas to the pajama program, a non-profit organization that collects pajamas and books to donate to kids in the united states who are waiting or hoping to be adopted.  for every pair of pajamas collected at this production of goodnight moon, the musical, scholastic will donate an equal number of early learning books. 

the dates of the show run from october 27 through december 23, 2011.  they are also hosting "pajama parties" where kids wear their pajamas to the show and the show is followed by a milk and cookies reception.  what could be more fun?

i received four tickets to the show, along with this information from the chicago children's theatre.  regardless, the opinions expressed here are purely my own.
