What we wore to see Cinderella on the stage

On Saturday, we went to see the Rodgers and Hammerstein production of Cinderella. It was touring through Pittsburgh and my mother-in-law, Jill thought it would be fun. Emilia is technically younger than the minimum age permitted for this theater but she's been to other stage productions and always behaves excellently. We decided to risk it (she's just a few months away from their requirement) and it was a great success.

She was mesmerized throughout the play, as she usually is in these situations. And we were both enthralled with the songs and costumes. My favorite scenes were the dress transformations! They happened right on stage with no clouds of smoke or trick mirrors to be found. I'd love to get a closer look at those specific pieces! Jill kindly treated Emilia to one of the "topsy turvy" dolls being sold at the merchandise stand. It features Cinderella in her working clothes on one side and Cinderella in her ball gown on the other. So cool!

Before the play, we all went to the Gandy Dancer (the bar at the Grand Concourse) for dinner. There were two weddings happening in the main restaurant so it was fun to catch glimpses of the bride. My mother-in-law snapped this family photo after dinner. It was fun to get dressed up together. We saw lots of other girls in princess frocks and tiaras so Emilia fit right in.
