My Night at The Ballet

My night at the ballet

 

Last night was a Thursday night and starting from five o’clock Ruby, Allegra, Olivia and I wee hanging around the front gate waiting for Izzy to arrive. She was having a two-night sleepover. We waited for half an hour and she still wasn’t here. At about 5:45 we went in for dinner feeling depressed. Just when we started dinner (which was pasta), Izzy arrived. We all jumped up and ran to meet her. Then we all went back inside and continued dinner. When we’d finished we went upstairs and played for about half an hour. At 6:30 a black limousine (which was driven by our grandmother who is a millionaire) came to pick us up for the ballet of Alice in Wonderland in the Mwldan Royal Theatre. When we got there, we sat down at a table and waited for our godmother Sue who was the Queen of India when she was younger. When she arrived, we had a lovely feast of banana cake and cucumber sandwiches with shloer for the kids and wine for the adults. Then we went inside to watch the ballet…

When we went inside we were escorted seats which were in the front row. They had velvet cushions and a packet of sweets in the arm of each chair. While we were waiting for the ballet to start we played a ha-hilarious game of Chinese whispers. Then the lights dimmed, and the show started…

The first half was wonderful. There was lots of dancing and absolutely no talking. At half time we went to our table and ordered some brownies, flapjacks, rhubarb cake and more banana cake. We also ordered drinks. Ruby and I had orange Fanta, Izzy and Olivia had water and Allegra, Sue and Granny had apple juice. Then we went in to watch the second half…

When it finished, Granny took us all home in her limousine, Sue first then the rest of us. In the limousine we discussed who our favourite character was and what our favourite part was. We all liked The Cat best…

My favourite part was the Queen of Hearts. Ruby’s favourite part was when Alice was extra-large. Izzy’s favourite was the Duchess and the pig baby. The Twins said they liked it all. When we got home we all went straight to bed and fell asleep.
