Children’s Play

May 24, 2008

I watched some kids a while ago at the Teatrino or whatever that place was called in Greenhills. On the suggestion of my trainer from Convergys, I opted to take some time to watch these young hopefuls take center stage in a musical theatrical based on various Peanuts strips. There was no single plot. It was more of a montage of strips brought to life by the whimsical piano and pre-pubescent voices of children. How was it? It was pretty fun. Although I was all by myself, it actually helped me appreciate the whole performance even more. The children were cute and mostly energetic to watch and the piano provided enough music to the scene without really drowning out their teeny little voices (Yes, I’m talking to you Charlie Brown).

When I arrived, I was still a little disoriented and unsure if I had walked into the right show. Then I recognized that yellow shirt and zigzag stripe anywhere. Oh, that kid dressed up as a dog helped me realize I was in the right place, too. Some of their voices were difficult to hear but I wasn’t really expecting the most spectacular show of the year. I’m not bashing these kids. In fact, I applaud them for putting on a show that didn’t put the Peanuts gang to shame. My particular favorite segment was when Snoopy was having a monologue about supper. The song was cute and the humor of Snoopy/Charlie Brown was done well.

Unfortunately, I do not have pics. So go and sue while screaming “It didn’t happen!”. You just wait, I’ll get a cam. Someday. Just wait for it. :p
