Would you?

Last week my son asked if we could go see another school put on Shrek the Musical. We don't really know anybody in this production. My son has met the student that will play Shrek, as that student's parents work at our school and our involved in our musical productions.. But beyond that we don't know any of these kids. I bought 4 tickets to go on Thursday night. I thought my younger boys would like it as well. Then we find out my 14 year old can't go, he has a drumline preview show that night, as championships are this coming weekend. But I already got the tickets to Shrek.. My son found out he can go with some friends on Friday night, so I gave him more money to get 2 more tickets, and he's bringing his girlfriend. I have to decide if I still want to go on Thursday night. I could sell back the tickets if I wanted to.. I'll probably at least sell back 1 of them as I don't need 4 now. I can't go any other night.. Friday I work late, and Saturday is my daughter's winterguard championships.. Would you go to a school to see a production even if you didn't know any of the kids in it? I think my younger boys would still enjoy it. Our school did it a few years ago and it was fun.

Oh definitely we would go - we've done that many times! We saw a teen production of Shrek last year at our local college just before last summer - it was done really, really well - and we knew no one it.

I've never done it before. I've only ever been to our high school performances that my kids are involved in.. or we've been to professional shows.

@katsmeow1213 We do like to support the kids that we know who do these productions . . . but it is nice too to see a show without any prior knowledge about kids and their skills . . . purely no expectations. As much as we love professional shows, they can be pretty darn expensive . . . school theater prices are awesome!

@much2say yes that's true. But they aren't quite as good..

I would still go. It sounds like it would be fun if you like musicals. My college puts on plays and musicals all year long and people in the community come all the time and though they don't know anyone performing.

Yes it might be fun, I thought the boys would like it. I think I'll leave it up to them.

I would still go. It will be interesting to see how another school does a play especially if you've seen another production recently.

Ours was 3 years ago.. the twins were in 6th grade. My daughter was in it for a split second, and my son was stage crew for it.

If I already had the tickets I would definitely go.

I ordered the tickets, but haven't paid for them yet. I will pay for them at will call.
