This season at DePaul Theatre School

I am hotly anticipating taking my eight-year-old daughter to this season's trio of performances at the DePaul Theatre School. We already have tickets for the first show, The Witches, by Roald Dahl. This was one of my favorite movies as a kid. While I never read the book, I loved the story and fell in love with Anjelica Huston.

The second performance will be Nancy Drew and the Sign of the Twisted Candles, another childhood favorite. Did you know that there is an early reader series? My daughter and I can't wait to see Nancy, George, and Bess come alive on the stage.

The last performance will be Barrio Grrrl! A Musical, written by Pulitzer Prize finalist and Tony nominee Quiara Alegría Hudes (In the Heights). This will be entirely new to both of us, but the idea of a Latina "superhero" is enough to get us in the seats.
