One week ago I went to one of the many shows of Theatre Under The Stars. It was really great to experience a play outdoors.
Theatre Under The Stars is an organization that organizes theatre plays in Stanley Park every year. As it is a non-profit organization, it depends a lot on volunteers. At the moment they are playing the shows The Drowsy Chaperone and Mary Poppins.
Tuesday was the opening night of the show Mary Poppins and Marie arranged a ticket for me. When we first got in, we got the chance to see the costumes from the last shows. After that it was finally time to find our seats. I could not believe how big Theatre Under The Stars is! There is place for more than 1000 people. On the night of the opening there were also more than 1000 people present at the show. Marie and I got placed on a chair at the aisle with a great view over the stage, but there were also people sitting on the grass. Another great thing about the show is that you can bring your own food and drinks to the show, except for alcohol.
I didn’t know that you could take food and drinks with you, so I was keeping myself satisfied with the beverages offered by the organization. I did not really know what to expect, but I was sure that it would turn out to be great, as so many people bought tickets for the show. If you have seen Mary Poppins before, you may already have ideas about what will happen during the show. I never watched Mary Poppins, which made everything a surprise to me. The actors were singing a lot and I was amazed by their voices. It was quite unbelievable that only the leads are paid actors. Besides that they also blew me away with the special effects. There were fireworks, people were flying and much more. Honestly, the show was way better than I expected and I am really glad that I got the chance to go.
I hope you all had a great week so far! See you tonight at PuB NiGHT!
