My mom likes to go to the theater, but she really can’t travel to the city anymore because of her knees.
It’s all so very hard for her to sit in a chair for a long amount of time.
There is a community theater in town and they have handicap seating. They also have places where my mom can sit in her walker or scooter. The community theater and town has shows three or four times during the year. The shows run for a couple of weeks and the tickets aren’t very expensive. All of the proceeds from the ticket sales go to the community theater. None of the actors are paid, but it is prestigious in the community to be selected for one of the parts. I bought tickets to see the Christmas show this year and I took my mom. We went on a Tuesday night. I didn’t think I was going to know any of the people in the Christmas show, because I didn’t recognize any of the names in the program. The program did not list the professions of each one of the actors and actresses. If the professions were listed next to each one of the people, then I might have recognized the name of my AC repair guy. The AC repair guy had one of the main supporting roles in the cast. He had two solos during the Christmas show and my mom and I were both surprised by the guy’s voice. The AC repair guy was a nice deep baritone and easily capable of hitting some of the lowest notes I have heard in the community theater.
