Happy Saturday mamas! The girls and I kicked off our weekend with a trip to The Rose Theater yesterday afternoon to see a preview performance of Mouse on the Move, a brand new interactive show just for preschoolers!
And as you’ll see below, Everly refused to take off her hat all day yesterday, but I figured dressing up as a kitty was at least semi-appropriate for a mouse show ;)
Theater for Tots
I love that The Rose puts together special productions for even the youngest theater enthusiasts. These smaller shows take place on the Hitchcock Stage which allows for a more intimate experience. The kiddos are welcome to sit on the floor up close to the action and interact with the characters throughout the show.
Mouse on the Move follows the adventures of Nellie and Amelia mouse as they search for their beloved cheese. Each child is given a knapsack filled with objects they need to help the mice on their quest. Eleanor absolutely loved getting involved with the storyline and was so excited to reach into her bag for the next surprise.
She took her responsibility to help out Nellie and Amelia very seriously ;)
The story is so creative and really invites kiddos to participate with all of their senses – smelling flowers, touching ice cold “starfish,” and hearing jingling bells. With a little imagination, you see the mice create a car, boat and rocket ship out of ordinary objects like a clothespin and button.
Both girls were so engaged through the whole show. I would definitely recommend this type of performance to introduce your preschooler to the world of performing arts!
