Remembering Your First Theater Experience

We’ve been talking about children’s entertainment a lot on and Lyn Gardner at The Guardian offers further proof of just how important it is. She shared the stories of her early theater-going experiences and how they changed her life, and included the memories of a few others as well. A standout quote:

“I recently ran into one of my daughter’s primary school friends and she reminded me of the time we went to see the London Bubble’s terrific Wonderland: Adventures of Alice in Greenwich Park, many years ago. She can’t have been more than five at the time. She’s 22 now and not only remembers the production vividly, but over the years has actually dreamed about it. It’s become part of her imaginative landscape; what more could any piece of theatre do?”
