The hills are alive...with field trips! Deep into autumn, but pre-trip, we took the opportunity to see Sound of Music presented in an interactive program. Our front row seats put us right into the action!
But the best parts about this show were the pre-show warm-up, during which the actors gave the children a historical context for the story, and the post-show Q&A session, when they explained what liberties had been taken. Overall, an A+ for both history and arts! If you ever have the chance to take your children to an interactive performance, we recommend it!
Can't make it to the show? Here are some resources for your own stay-at-home Sound of Music day! Grab the kids and their friends, some popcorn and/or hot cocoa, and transform a cold day into a warm school day!
