I love going to the theatre and I don’t get to go nearly enough. I have been a couple of times this year though and my most recent trip was to see Penn & Teller at the Eventim Apollo. When John realised that they were performing in London, he figured things out with work so I could go with my sister and her fiancé and he would have a few days with Erin at home. I have seen Penn & Teller on television for as long as I can remember, way back to when they had cameo roles in Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
We have a bit of a morning routine going with Erin at the minute. She gets up and has her breakfast and then watches Milkshake! for a bit before we either go out in the garden, play or do other things for the rest of the day. One of her absolute favourites to watch is Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom. When we had the opportunity to go and see Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom Live on Stage I jumped at the chance. Erin is now 17 months old and this was going to be her first experience at the theatre.
I normally don’t pay too much attention to any plays or musicals that come out in London. However, when I found out about Dreamgirls I was desperate to see it on a stage.

It was also a kind of late birthday present too. I arrived late morning on the Thursday and we started off with a Wetherspoons breakfast before heading off to Jurassic Kingdom (Review coming
Last night I went to see Avenue Q at the Norwich Playhouse with my husband, Kirsty and her husband. I have wanted to see this show for so long now but never would have picked it in London as there is always so much else to see. At £17 a ticket, this was much better priced and the theatre isn’t huge so seats are always really good. Avenue Q follows Princeton, a new graduate trying to find his purpose in life. On his journey he meets a whole host of colourful and furry characters on Avenue Q who help him to
