I AM a Theatre Snob II

I think it started when I was in 5th grade. Once you reached 5th grade, you could go to the San Francisco Opera for their Kids Day. Part of the deal was getting dressed up. I got to go both in 5th and 6th grade and a theatre snob was born!

Part of me knows I am being way too picky about all of this...but it is the theatre...not some program in a school cafeteria! No torn jeans should be rule #1!!! I also realize "The Lion King" is a FAMILY show, but if your child's bedtime is before 8 PM or is shortly AFTER 8 PM...do not bring them to a performance with an 8:00 PM curtain! By the end of the first act they are really tired and when theyb start crying they are tired and want to go home, take them OUT of the theatre and into the lounge! Do we need to point out that all of us in our section shelled out $128 a ticket...not just YOUR family?

Sigh...
