Olympia Family Theater presents "James & the Giant Peach" at SPSCC

We headed south to Olympia for a bit last weekend and saw "James and the Giant Peach" at South Puget Sound Community College's new fine arts center, the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts. The show was by the Olympia Family Theater ... and, well done! I was a bit concerned at first, thinking the play would not hold their attention, be too long, they'd be distracted by seeing their buddy for the first time since October, etc. ... but they sat still! Even the Short One! Well ... except while waiting to head in to the theater, as the below picture shows. Outside theater: Running, chasing, moving, tackling, etc. Inside the theater: Transfixed. Even the Short One cheered and applauded with the rest of the audience.

Oh yeah, and the grownups enjoyed the show too. Yay! :)

Great choice for a family outing ... did I mention that even the almost-3-year-old was enthralled?
