I love going to the theater. I went through a long dry spell when the kids were babies and toddlers, because it’s so expensive, and you have to plan pretty far ahead of time — hire a sitter, buy tickets, all that stuff. But they’re getting older now, and I’m starting to take them with me, and that’s awesome.
It’s not my job to go bankrupt trying to provide them with the greatest cultural experiences of their lives. But I do think it’s my job to provide a little training so when they’re grown and can go on their own, they have the exposure to enjoy it and know how to behave. And they don’t show up wearing Uggs.
So while we like going, and have a great time, we’re cheap about it. There are six of us — we have to be. Here are a few things we do to cut down on the cost of going to plays, museums, concerts, and other cultural hootenannies.
1.) Start at home
2.) Check out high school musicals
3.) Check out churches
