Fox Theatre Field Trip

Amber had a field trip today to the Fox Theatre. They got to here this man play this Wurlitzer Organ...one of only 2 still used in the U.S. He played "It's a Small World" which she said "Amy would have loved this. Also, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" and "America the Beautiful" which we call "Amber's song" because it has her name in it. She requested a pen so she could get his autograph. It was very cute and I could tell she was impressed.

We went on stage at the Fox Theatre! I tried telling the girls to take a bow, but they said "no thanks". That would have been very uncool, apparently.

We went backstage and saw all the graffiti walls and the dressing rooms. We went in the basement, under the stage and saw a lot more graffiti as well as tunnels that the actors/actresses use to get from one side of the stage to the other.

The tour took us to the very last row of the Fox Theatre and pointed out some of the very cool architecture and design.

Amber asked me tonight if I enjoyed the field trip. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and explained what a once in a lifetime opportunity it was to see everything that we did. Her response...well just sign up for a tour again.
