We put on our fancy clothes and headed up the road to The Community Arts Center to see the real Disney production of "Beauty and the Beast."

The theater itself is old and remarkably beautiful. I told the girls they were sitting in the same place in which their mommy's college graduation happened. Looking around at the theater decor kept them busy until the curtain went up.

Typical of any Disney production, it was musical, majestic, magical and memory-making.
The girls loved the sets, costumes, and special effects. During a storm scene they asked me "how do they make it rain in here?"
A favorite scene for the twins was a large production dance number in which all the dancers made a special rhythm by clanking their beer mugs with each other.
They were relieved and happy at the end when Belle and the Beast finally declared their love for each other and broke the spell. The girls informed me that now all the characters "will change to humans." (They had recently watched the movie and knew what SHOULD happen.)
My favorite character was Lumiere, a candle-looking guy with a French accent. "Ahhh Mademoiselle, you cut me to the wick!"
The girls needed some "Beauty and the Beast"
outrageously ridiculously overpriced souvenir roses, which they decided would have their mommy's perfume sprayed on them to smell more real.

After the show I
sugared them up before sending them home to Mom and Dad got them a Dunkin' Donuts snack, because they were starving and it had been a long wonderful night.
It was MUSICAL.
It was MAGICAL.
We made MEMORIES.
And it was just plain fun.
