This week, I left the movie house for the theater house. I got a rare treat. The Alley Theatre in Houston sent over a family pack of tickets so that I could review their A Christmas Carol : A Ghost Story of Christmas, playing now through December 28th. And while, the tickets were complimentary, you should know that this is my honest review of my experience at the Alley Theatre.
My family really enjoyed the production. I was a little worried about my nine year old because there are ghosts in the production. They are not overly scary, and the ghosts don’t roam into the audience. My nine year old was fine. There were plenty of younger children in the audience, and I didn’t notice any issues regarding scared children. There were also plenty of couples there without children. So, don’t feel like you have to take the kids.
