Theatrical plays are good fodder for conversations with your maturing child. For example, Dads can discuss the main leads and supporting characters, choice and intricacies of the play’s setting, stage lighting, sound effects, plot development, props and costumes. What purpose does each serve? What is the message the production seeks to convey?
