I remember the first (and only) time I ever saw a broadway show. I was just a little girl, and I had gone to New York City with my parents and sisters.

We had made a trip out there to see extended family, and I remember my parents waking my sisters and I up early in the morning. It was still dark out when we piled into our van.

My parents made the trip up extremely fun by surprising us with some special candy for the trip, as well as some Hello Kitty slip-in shoes.

We looked almost like triplets with our matching shoes and similar outfits, and after a few hours, we were eager to arrive in New York City.

Once we got there, we enjoyed strolling through Central Park, spending time with family, and exploring the city. We rode a ferris wheel that was inside a giant Toys R Us store, and even visited a huge toy store featuring large stuffed animals and a life-size floor piano that you played by jumping on.

All of these things were fun, memorable, and exciting. However, one of the other extremely fun parts of this trip was definitely getting to see a show on broadway with my family. I remember the three shows that we had to choose from at the time - Beauty and The Beast, The Lion King, and Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.

Since we had a large family, the only remaining show with enough seating for all of us to sit together was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. We saw the show on Broadway, and it was one of the most memorable parts of the trip.

While we can't exactly see a New York Broadway show in North Carolina, we do have the next best thing, which I am going to talk about in this article.
