My mom blessed us with a membership pass to the Indianapolis Children’s Museum last Christmas so I decided to pack us a PB+J lunch before church and we’d head straight there afterwards.
The Museum does have a wonderful cafeteria with many different menu items to select from however the dollars can add up pretty quick so I’ve found it to be less expensive personally to pack a lunch.
I knew that the Planetarium (a favorite activity to do there) is closed for renovations and I knew that if you don’t want to miss a show in the Lilly Theater you have to get tickets (free with admission) early! So I headed straight to the ticket booth and thankfully scored four tickets to a live play I knew nothing about…lol…other than it would help keep my little ones engaged and entertained hopefully.
Actually…turned out I was pleasantly surprised and completely blown away by the professional quality of this production. From the cast, to the music, to the story…it definitely exceeded my expectations in every way!
I would’ve taken pics of the excitement on my kids’ faces and posted them here as testimonial proof of their full engagement but cell phones are pretty much unwelcome guests in the theater with good reason.
The exceptionally talented cast kept the whole audience actively engaged with sing-a-long holiday songs, laughter and even classic Christmas introspection/inspiration–leaving members of the audience, young and old alike, to examine the true measure of kindness we exhibit in our daily lives towards others in our community.
I can’t recommend it highly enough. Definitely a MUST SEE before it’s too late!
