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.

@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!
