A few weeks ago my family went to see Dot & Ziggy at the Chicago Children’s Theatre. To be honest, I probably would never have attempted to bring my children to the theatre if I hadn’t received free tickets. I just didn’t think that they would sit through a performance and I didn’t want to waste my money on something that my kids wouldn’t sit through.
I was wrong.
My children watched attentively through THE. WHOLE. THING. My boys who have sensory issues and don’t sit still for anything remained enthralled in this show until the end. I was amazed. The show, which is specifically for babies and toddlers, even kept the adults in the crowd entertained.
We sat on the floor as the story unfolded around us. We watched as Dot, a ladybug, and Ziggy, a skunk, became friends. Throughout the show they talked a lot about opposites and differences which were great learning lessons for the older children in the crowd.
My family enjoyed the show a lot and we will be back for future shows!
