And God bless us, not even a mouse (cookie)
Tonight we are at New England Youth Theatre’s production of A Christmas Carol. At the lobby snack bar we got these MOST adorable cookies ever. Holiday magic sprung from half an Oreo, a Hershey’s kiss, a maraschino cherry dipped in chocolate and slivered almond ears.
In true Brattleboro style, the director’s notes explain that this production teaches lessons of solidarity with Occupy Wall Street.
The show was wonderful. Too long, but still very entertaining. The kids seem to take direction well, and the crew knew enough ‘real’ theater tricks to keep things moving. The Greek chorus girls, heavily influenced by Helena Bonham Carter, stole the show.
