We attended the performance of Aladdin as a guest Who doesn’t love a classic Disney movie turned into a Broadway production? With the lights, the costumes and the live acting there is something for everyone to enjoy. Aladdin is one of the most exciting Disney princess movies of all time (in my opinion,) so when seeing it performed on a stage, you can imagine the greatness. I went to the theater with my mom, and we quickly took our seats. We waited for the show to begin. From the very second, the show started to the last second, the energy was always so high and never faltered. It had me singing along to every classic song during and after the show.

I attended Dear Evan Hansen as a guest of the Segerstrom Center for the Arts Recently I had the opportunity to go The Segerstrom Center for the Arts and watch the Tony Award Winning show. Dear Evan Hansen. I have been wanting to see this show ever since my mom had seen in on Broadway in New York with Ben Platt. She told me all about how moving and beautiful it was, so I was counting down the days until I could see it. We drove the theatre at the start of the New Year and prepared ourselves to see the show. I had no idea what to expect, but I had listened to the soundtrack before, so I was excited to hear all the songs on stage. We arrived and went upstairs to take our classic Segerstrom photo...
