Peter Pan at the Orange County Performing Arts Center

We are big fans of theater in our home. My daughter has now watched a couple of shows and my son has watched two. I can’t tell you how excited I am that Peter Pan, a threesixty production, is coming to the Orange County Performing Arts Center, in just a couple of days. Not only are we theater lovers in our home, we are huge Peter Pan fans and I am literally counting down the days until we can attend as a family. 

The new threesixty° stage production of PETER PAN, J M Barrie’s classic story will be performed in a state-of-the-art theater pavilion at the Orange County Performing Arts Center for a limited engagement starting Tuesday, September 28, 2010, with the opening night set for Sunday, October 3, 2010.

One of the most striking elements of this new production is the setting in which it is presented. The threesixty° Theatre, allows for performance “in the round” in a 1,300 seat theater-tent, which will stand beside the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. The entire interior of the tent is lit with more than 15,000 square feet of Hi-Resolution video – three times the size of Imax screens – so that both cast and audience are immersed in a CGI Neverland. When Peter and Wendy fly to Neverland, the audience flies with them over 400 square miles of virtual London and beyond.

I don’t splurge for many things, however, theater tickets and cultural events always have room in our budget. This is one event you do not want to miss! Tickets are on sale now at the Orange County Performing Arts Center’s box office or by heading here

The show will run from Sept 28th-Nov 21st.

Legally Blonde The Musical Giveaway and Discount code

Happy Friday Everyone!
Do you love musicals? Are you looking to take your family to a show that is family friendly and of course fun? Then you have to check out Legally Blonde The Musical. The show is celebrating its Los Angeles Premiere at the Pantages Theatre for four weeks only, August 12-September 6. LEGALLY BLONDE follows sorority star Elle Woods, an underestimated blonde who doesn’t take “no” for an answer. When her boyfriend dumps her for someone more “serious,” Elle puts down the credit card, hits the books, and sets out to go where no Delta Nu has gone before: Harvard Law. Along the way, Elle proves that being true to yourself never goes out of style. After turning Broadway and MTV hot pink, this “Feel-Good Song and Dance Juggernaut” (New York Magazine) was proclaimed “The Best New Musical Around!” (WOR).
