Last Wednesday, we enjoyed a family day, going to see “Thomas and Friends” at the Johnstown War Memorial. It was a last minute decision as we saw it advertised on PBS the Saturday before.
Both Ethan and Sarah enjoyed the 90-minute musical stage production. There was a lot of audience participation, a lot of music. Percy, Diesel, and of course, Thomas, made an appearance. They were very realistic looking, large enough that an adult rode in them. Their mouths moved as they spoke. Thomas and Percy maneuvered freely around the stage. It held the kids’ attention well.
Late in 2009, after bringing Sarah home, we took Ethan to his first musical, a production of “Peter and the Wolf” in Philipsburg. This was Sarah’s first experience and all faired well!
