My Theatre Wishlist

Theatre has been a passion of mine since I was a pre-teen. I have composed a wish list of some Theatre shows that I would like to see or have seen but wouldn’t mind seeing them again.

I first got into Theatre when I was taken to see ‘The Wizard of Oz’ with my sister, from that moment I have been addicted to the Theatre scene. My favourite things about musical theatre is the story’s that are told by music, song and dance.

Here is my musical Theatre Wish list:

  1. I happen to have a theatre wishlist too. Rent is on the list-seeing this year. Beauty and the Beast and Lion King are two shows I already saw live, but have no memories of those two experience and that is why I want to see them again. I am thinking of having Aladdin on the list. Les Mis is on the list again and I am thinking of seeing it in Spanish: I am a Spanish minor, so why not? I want to see King and I as well
