Neshaminy Montessori recently put on their festive holiday best to go and see “Adventures in Toyland”.
It has become an annual tradition to take students to the theater this time of year. According to experts, taking children to watch a live performance could provide a host of developmental benefits, including improved emotional intelligence and opportunities to discuss difficult subjects. On top of that, it’s just fun. Plus, we love how so many families can join in on another bonding opportunity for the community.
“Adventures in Toyland” is written and directed by Storybook’s own Artistic Director, Patricia Goldberg, with music and lyrics by Jeff Reim. This creative tale tells the story of how four extraordinary toys come to life to help a young boy face his fears, build his confidence, and make his dreams come to life. Throughout his adventures, Michael (the lead) learns that he can be anything he wants to be just by using his imagination and believing in himself.
The children were so excited to have the opportunity to say hello to the performers, and a wonderful time was had by all.
