The new season of theatre is on.
We spent the day with our lovely granddaughters Katelyne and Brianne
With lunch at Mac Alpines Soda Fountain, a 1920′s soda fountain and lunch, a real treat for a 11 and 13 year old, who have never seen a jukebox that play records not an Ipod. It was a delightful day for Lewis and myself.
Here is our day in pictures
MacAlpines in the 1930′s
Bubble gum soda!!
One of our favorite places in Phoenix the vintage soda fountain MacAlpine’s. This drugstore fountain was built in 1928, and when the pharmacy closed in 1992, it began a new career as a restaurant and fountain. Located adajacent to the Cornado Historic District http://www.gcna.info . Lovely place to have a cold drink (real cherry coke my favorite) or make your own creation
Grease the musical
August 13 through 29, 2010
Valley Youth Theatre
First produced on Broadway in 1972, this show is filled with lighting – greased lighting! Grease is the word . . . and a throwback to the golden age of rock ‘n’ roll, when fast cars and grease in your hair were the most important things in the life of a teenager. Enjoy show-stopping songs like “Summer Nights”, “Beauty School Dropout”, and “We Go Together” in the intimate setting of the Valley Youth Theatre
Established in 1989, Valley Youth Theatre (VYT) is dedicated to helping young people learn and grow as performers and creators; and to instill in all young people an appreciation for the performing arts that can be carried with them into adulthood. Valley Youth Theatre has created a most unique opportunity with our own children’s orchestra, technicians and actors http://www.vyt.com/
A Great day was had by all!!
