The last time the girls went on a date with Grammie and Grumpy they went to the movies and saw a preview for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland. Since then, every time they see the movie poster they exclaim, “Alice is scary!” Thus, we wanted to show them Alice isn’t scary, but actually a fun story, so amidst the rain, we made the trek to Santa Monica for a friend’s housewarming and then to the Santa Monica Playhouse and watched Alice and the Wonderful Tea Party.
The verdict: the girls loved it! They were clapping and completely engaged with the performance. After, they kept singing “… a party, a party!” which is one of the songs that was sung during the play. Now, they love Alice and even pretend to be Alice themselves and are asking to watch more shows.
Little Soul came along too, but she was quietly sleeping throughout most of the performance. I guess she loved it too.
Hopefully now they won’t be so scared of Alice, though I must admit, Johnny Dep and Helena Bonham Carter do look a bit scary, but it is a Tim Burton film after all.
Hope your weekend was just as good. Don’t forget to enter the giveaway and visit the shop as it now has a few goodies inside, including only
