  12. I’m already subscribed to all and the twitters and fbs too.
    Wish we could have seen Billy Elliot but my kids were all in Ballet Arkansas’ Nutcracker (my favorite production I must say!) My daughter wants me to take her to NYC to see some shows for her 16th in March!

  18. I took my 9 y/o granddaughter on a ‘big girls’ date last night. We went to Emelia’s Kitchen for dinner and then to WAC to see Cantus and Latte da theater’s All is Calm. We had a wonderful time and decided that a WAC date night is going to be our new kick off the holiday season tradition.

    • evolvedmommy

      The theater (especially during the holidays) is soul enriching. You will treasure that new tradition.

  19. I’m already subscribed :) and I follow you and Walton Arts on twitter and facebook.

    I loved STOMP. Im heading to Billy Elliot on opening night and looking forward to Potted Potter. And, hoping to see Cathc Me If You Can; it’s a favorite movie of mine also. When I was little I use to dream about being on Broadway. Now, I just live through those good enough to make it and brave enough to try.

    • evolvedmommy

      It really was a great movie! In lieu of all of the requirements you could share it out.
