Click Clack Moo

Sorry the pictures are a bit blurry b/c the room was fairly dark and I was using my camera. You can see our friends there too, Stacey and Samuel.

We went to the free summer-time theater for kids at the Lucille Cortel Theatre we saw "Click Clack Moo."

It took the kidlets a little time to warm up to it. All the actors were hilarious and kept me laughing. In the story book the cows have a typewriter but in the play they have a laptop (which of course the cows know/learn how to use) and they have a printer. They also watch movies about cows on "Mootube."

It was sweet. A member of our old Church ward, Sarah Gee, was in it and it was fun to watch her. The play's target market was children 4-8. There were a few babies. It was so fun to hear S call out at one point, "That's NOT a duck, it's a person dressed up as a duck."

It was fun to see the foibles of cows and chickens involved in a strike. The strife of a farmer keeping his farm out of foreclosure as well as keeping the chickens and cows appeased, not to mention his spunky granddaughter that dislikes the structure of farm work and prefers to email and such--which is how the laptop and printer end up in the barn.

It was great--I would definitely suggest seeing it. It may take a bit for your kids to fully enjoy it, but they will be happily delighted by the end. It happens at 10 a.m. Mon-Fri with a 6 p.m. show on Thursday (I think there are other times, but I cannot remember right now), you can Google it if you are interested in going. Pictures to come. Arrive early, tickets go fast.

I wish we could see this! The kids love "Click Clack Moo"--it's one of our favorite books. In fact, we have a particular way of saying "Click, Clack...MOO" in our house that's found it's way into other sayings: "Click Clack...NO!" Sethie says. Anyway, sounds like the play is super fun.

I have to say, that those kind of things are what I still miss about living there. Enjoy them all you can!
