Llama Llama Holiday Drama

The weekend after Thanksgiving, we kept the family good times rolling by going to see my niece and nephew in Llama Llama Holiday Drama at the Stages Theater.

It’s a sweet little play based on the Llama Llama book by Anna Dewdney and adapted by Brooklyn Park playwright Jennifer Kirkeby. In the story, little Llama Llama is excited for Christmas and can hardly stand all the waiting. (John and PJ could relate). Just an hour long, it was the perfect length for little kids.

PJ and John were so excited to see Nicholas after the play.

(btw, I enhanced all of my photos with my favorite iPad photo app – Photogene. These are all done with the vintage Noir preset.)

Natalie had the most beautiful costume. She played a Mama Cat. 

I love seeing her self-confidence and identity develop through her performances.

Those ears were the softest things EVER.

Pottery Barn Kids could sell them and make a fortune even more of a fortune.

Here’s Mom with Natalie.

Did you know that girls share more DNA with their paternal grandmothers than their maternal grandmothers? Just read that.

It was such a wonderful way to cap off our Thanksgiving weekend.

As I took this last photo, I thought of little Llama Llama learning the real meaning of Christmas…

    What a lovely blog! So glad I came upon it. And for the record, I am loving working with Natalie and Nicholas. Happy Holidays!

    Glad you stopped by, Jennifer.

    Yes, I can imagine the entire cast is a delight to work with – Stages is the perfect venue for it, too. If memory serves, the performance runs through the 29th – so you’re in the home stretch now.

    Happy Holidays to you, too and break a leg!
