The Story Fairy and I have put our heads together, (it hurts, by the way, when you put your head together with the Story Fairy because she always wears such pokey things on her head) and we’ve decided that its about time to produce a family music show over here on the east side of the lake. And when we added Chadd’s head and Michael’s head and Stacey’s head to the conversation, we found that we were all in a chord (Ha!- little musical joke there!) After, that is, we all pulled Story Fairy leafy fall headpiece out of our ears, eyes and my curls.
So it has been decreed – you need to SAVE THE DATE! On October 20th at Lake Washington High School Performing Arts Center at promptly 10:00am, we will march out on stage and serenade you and your youngsters with music and lots of wonderful pretending, and some real stuff, too, for 55 fun-filled musical minutes.
Chadd and I will sing hello and you’ll sing along (real). Seriously, you’d better sing with me. We’ll bounce and play a game (real). Stacey and Michael will be mad at each other (pretend). Chadd and I will be perplexed by them (real). Chadd will play the piano (real -yes, he is that good). And Stacey and Michael and I will sing. (real - no lip synching allowed!).
The Story Fairy will arrive and demand a story (real). There will be dinosaurs, (pretend) and houses on wheels (real). There will be frogs… (somewhere between real and pretend), and majors and minors (pretend, a life-sized doll (pretend and real), and Dorothy and Toto, too, and June Cleaver and a pink, poofy-pokey headed princess thing. (Real… yeah, I really mean it.)
You’ll just have to come see how we manage to weave all these unrelated and weird things into one rip roaring fun Halloween themed 55 minute concert.
I promise a good time, and beautiful yummy cookies from Hoffman’s Bakery for kids and grownups, and stamps and Story Fairy cards and hugs and pictures in the lobby when we are all done.
(Real), all the best endings have cookies.
Tickets are only $10 for children, $6 for their grownups, and parking is ample and free. This concert is appropriate for all ages (we don’t do scary, only funny); and YES, come dressed in costume. We’d love it.
See you soon!
