    I saw it Saturday and our quidditch kids were adorable. Definitely don't think they were planted, the little girl chosen didn't know what a snitch was xP But as she said, she's only in 4th grade. She was very sassy. Taylor and I loved the show! Glad everyone else had fun too!

    I got to see it tonight (couldn't make it when the group was going), but loved every minute! So funny! Have to ask, though: Were your kids for quidditch absolutely ridiculous? We were trying to figure out if they were planted or not. Also, did they tackle the snitch to the ground?

      They seemed like normal kids to me - somewhat shy at the beginning. Yes, our boy ran up from behind the snitch and he fell face forward. What happened at yours? Another member posted on FB that their snitches were different - girl was sassy.

      Our little girl was full Slytherin and got the boy from Gryffindor to steal the quaffle from Delme almost immediately. And the Gryffindor boy was so fun! He just kept dancing and shouting his answers. It was great. The main guys kept making each other laugh, to, which was great. One said "Those seekers got 99 problems but a snitch ain't one" and it stopped the show for a full minute because they couldn't stop laughing. It was just such a fun show! I wish I could've made it with everyone, but I'm glad we can all discuss it!

    Yes, Talei! I thought those parts were the funniest too, though the whole thing really was hilarious. I had tears in my eyes too. Fun show.

    Very very funny!

    A sometimes silly, family friendly parody: HP-lite.

  • Talei

    Hilarious! I laughed so hard I had tears in my eyes! Funniest parts for me was when the little boy face planted the snitch and the 'I will survive' song!

  • Talei

    We are in the lobby, heading to teaisim soon

    September 8, 2013

  • Talei

    I'm at Fuel next door to the theatre if anyone else is super early!

  • Kristen S.

    What time should we actually arrive since the show starts at 2?

    September 7, 2013

    • Talei

      I'm planning on being there between 1:30 & 1:45pm

    I work at the Maryland Renaissance Festival so I can't do things on the weekends this timw of year. I will be at the Thursday night performance this coming week, however.

    September 7, 2013

  • Danielle

    Also we will meet in the lobby post show and then head to dinner.

    I'm going to the show at 7:30 if anyone wants to join me.

    I was thinking Teaism would be a great meal post-show. The food is good and there is lots of space downstairs for a larger group.

    I have heard nothing but good things about this show and I'm getting really excited about it!

    September 2, 2013

    • Cathy

      Me too! Looking forward to it.

  • Cathy

    Thanks for calling my attention to this show. I didn't know it was coming here!

    I couldn't get the above link to work. If you can't either, go to http://www.shakespearetheatre.org/ and navigate your way to the show.

    Also note that the show is NOT at the address listed above. It's 2 blocks away, at the STC's second location, Sydney Harman Hall, 610 F St NW, just up the street and around the corner, across from Verizon Center.

    (And if you're already a season subscriber, you can get a 20% subscriber discount, instead of the 10% MEETUP discount.)

    I can't wait!

      I updated the address to Sydney Harman Hall.

      June 12, 2013

    • Cathy

      Good thinking!The link, by the way, is working again now. I think STC must have been having trouble with its website last night when I was trying; even when I got in, it kept going funky on me.

    A seats are closer and require more audience participation (which is very little and is both good and bad). I'd recommend A if you want a chance to play Quidditch (which is precisely the way we play it in the movie theater, BTW). B is further back, I assume. I was a few rows back in the "B" section in NY and it was perfect for me--no pressure and still fantastic seats.

    2 · June 11, 2013

    • Danielle

      Thanks Kate -- I didn't realize what might happen if I sat too close!

      June 11, 2013

    • Cathy

      I went for the A seats. My son would be mad if others got to play Quidditch and he did not. We've got great seats. But don't worry if you're further back; it's at the new theater, Harman Hall, and it's well designed so that all seats are pretty good ones.

      June 12, 2013

  • Michelle

    What's the difference between A and B seats? I really want to go, just need to know what to get!

    June 11, 2013

    • Danielle

      I believe it's location and price. Does that help?

      June 11, 2013

    • Michelle

      I figured, but the website doesn't say what's where. Thanks!

      June 11, 2013

  • delma

    uh oh. i got A. i also feel really bad because Austin is so tall.

    June 11, 2013

  • delma

    i bought my tickets - thanks, Danielle for organizing the Meetup and getting us a discount!

  • KateKintail

    I already saw it in NYC, so I won't be going to see it again. Have a great time! Be sure to tell me who wins the Quidditch match and how awesome the dragon special effects are!

    June 11, 2013

  • Talei

    Yay, brought my ticket! I'm in Q1!

    June 11, 2013

  • Kristen S.

    So glad I don't have to make a special trip to NYC to see this!
