|Lily, Jamie, and Henry aka The Three Musketeer.|
There was a lot of swashbuckling sword fighting in our house this evening after the middle kids went to see The Three Musketeers at the Playhouse in the Park this afternoon.
It was a fantastic show for kids... more action and fight scenes then "boring talking" which is
what my boys label any dialogue more then a couple of lines.
What made it even more fun was the Young Musketeers class that the Playhouse held for kids before the show.
In the class the kids were taught some very cool stage fighting moves by two very cool and funny stage fighting actors. My kids alternated between fighting and belly laughing over the hilarity of learning the proper technique of sword fighting.
They also learned that a ton of attitude is needed to be a musketeer.
After the show they ran out of the theater to a nearby grassy knoll, where they proceeded to beat each other up with their foam swords and had a blast doing it.
The fights ensued for quite some time and thankfully no one was injured in spite of the numerous battle cries from all three musketeers of "prepare to DIE!"

The Three Musketeers in running for another couple of weeks, I highly recommend it for any young swashbucklers and their parents.

A huge thank you to Hulafrog for the recommendation of the performance and for letting me know about the pre-show Young Musketeers class for kids. My kids especially thank you for keeping us up to date on all the great opportunities for kids in the community.
