Bunnies and Doggies and Cats, Oh My!

Hi! This is Julia Rudy again and I’m almost six now. Last weekend, Daddy took me to see this really neat play about a bunny that likes to suck the juice out of carrots (Yick) because he was a vampire bunny. Daddy was really looking forward to it because he plays with monsters at Halloween and has all the “Buffy” TV shows that he doesn’t let me watch, but he let me watch this one. I’m glad because I really liked it. (I don’t think Daddy did, because he kept falling asleep and making funny sounds and that’s why he’s letting me tell you about it because I liked it so much.) Anyway, it was about this dog named Harold and this cat named Chester who was a girl even though Chester is a boy’s name and about how a bunny came to their house and they were afraid of it because it left white vegetables (Yick) in the refrigerator and they kept getting into trouble with the grownups and the bunny (it was really neat when its eyes turned all red and bright) got sick and Harold and Chester were able to help it and they all became friends even though the Bunny really was a vampire but a nice one because he only drank vegetable juice (Yick). I also liked all the songs and wish my Daddy would let me see a play where I didn’t have to take tickets and clean up afterwards even though I was also able to help a lady with a birthday party afterwards and got a slice of cake too. I can’t wait to tell all my friends in Kindergarten about the Bunny and wish Daddy would let me have a Bunny so I could give it my vegetables (Yick) and not have to eat them myself.

-- Julia Rudy

Daddy’s Note – Maybe I was just tired, but I thought this show was only just okay. It has a great message about not judging people, there’s not a bad performance in the cast, the lightning effects were nice and spooky, and it used the “Nervous Smile” set very well. There’s no denying Julia loved it, as did all the other kids who were there. I just thought the songs nice but bland, the puppetry was nice but bland, and the dialogue was nice but bland. I fully acknowledge my reaction is my fault -- my expectations were probably a tad misplaced (it is almost opening day at Netherworld and my scare-‘em-sense is panting at the gate) and, my narcolepsy was sharpening its dull little claws. But, if you take your kids, they’ll have a great time, and it’ll probably make you the family hero.
