Last week we went to see The Sound of Music at Rainbow Stage in Kildonan Park. Rainbow Stage is a somewhat-open-to-the-elements theater in the park. Here's a photo of the outside we took while standing in line:
The night we went had rush seating. We arrived around 20 minutes before the doors were due to open, thinking that would be plenty of time. However, it turns out the early birds had all arrived quite a bit earlier. One person would stand (or sit on a lawn chair) in line, while the rest sat on picnic blankets and ate a picnic dinner. However, the seat we got was just fine:
Here you can see the "open to the elements" bit:
There's a roof to keep rain off, but the temperature isn't controlled, nor are insects. Luckily the mosquitoes didn't make an appearance. The dragonfly flying around during the opening "singing in the mountains" scene was appropriate, though. ;)
The music and play was fantastic! Noricum, her folks, and I all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!
On a slightly related note, Noricum's neighbourhood is being used for some movie filming this week:
They sent around a notice, but Noricum can't remember what it's called. Winnipeg is a popular place for filming movies.
