From WarHorse Musical to the Carrie Underwood Blown Away Tour

Carrie Underwood Blown Away Tour

I learned seconds ago that we are definitely getting tickets to the Carrie Underwood Blown Away Tour at the Wells Fargo Center!

Can you say EXCITED?! Woot! Woot!

Last night was such a blast at the PSMM CyberMonday event (which I will tell you more about next post since I am still recovering from running the show there) AND I have tickets for WarHorse at the Kimmel Center tonight AND now Carrie Underwood TOMORROW AND a blogger event Thursday night if I am alive by then. What a week! I won’t even go into plans for the weekend at our very first horse show for which I am still shopping for dress riding crops.

When it comes to reviews, I have truly enjoyed all the wonderful review items that have entered our home but my girls are teenagers now. They want experiences. They are still pretty patient when I want them to tell me if a toy would have appealed to them 10 years ago but this will be their very first concert and one I feel I can attend with them without totally embarrassing them (which according to them I do anyway).

It’s funny. My 15 yr old was the MOST excited about this concert. My 14 year old actually seems more intrigued by the musical WarHorse, two very different musical performances by incredibly talent singers. My youngest is in choir this year and set to perform her own duet during the Christmas concert and she is learning about using and projecting her voice and having the confidence to do it in front of peers. She’s always been a bit shy but she loves to sing and she’s pretty good at it. It will be interesting to see whether she can build the confidence to do solos in the future. I love having her see others who have taken their talents to amazing levels like Carrie and the voices of actors in WarHorse.

Here is more about the award winning Broadway musical WarHorse:

A remarkable tale of courage, loyalty and friendship. England, 1914. As World War One begins, Joey, young Albert’s beloved horse, is sold to the cavalry and shipped from England to France. He’s soon caught up in enemy fire, and fate takes him on an extraordinary journey, serving on both sides before finding himself alone in no man’s land. But Albert cannot forget Joey and, still not old enough to enlist, he embarks on a treacherous mission to find him and bring him home. This powerfully moving and imaginative drama, filled with stirring music and songs, is a show of phenomenal inventiveness. At its heart are astonishing life-sized puppets created by South Africa’s Handspring Puppet Company, who bring breathing, galloping, charging horses to life on the stage.
