not at all.of course that is if they offer theater classes for younger children. if not I strongly recommend dance. a friend of mine started dancing very young and now at 19 still dances. They often did recitals that looked like plays so your little girl might enjoy that, as well as the costumes

well, for the past 2 summers now, (she was 3 when she first started) she has been taking dance lessons from a reputable dance school here and, yes, she enjoyed it a lot. culmination for each summer session was also a recital where the kids get to wear different costumes. she took it all in a stride. it was a different story for me, though. everytime her turn to dance came, i was a mass of nerves! talk about stage mothers!
