Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse

It's been a crazy day!  Keith and I were both selected to chaperone the Kindergarten field trip to the Mizel Art Center in Denver.  This was Keith's first time on a field trip and the teacher tried to break him!  He had two unruly kids in his group and he was extremely grumpy when we got home.

We saw Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse.  It's a lovely play about a young mouse named Lilly that is a self proclaimed Queen of the World who likes everything.  Everything, except for her brand new baby brother.  Lilly makes a couple new friends, deals with a narcissistic cousin named Garland and misbehaves in class because she isn't getting attention at home.  In the end, Lilly learns a lesson and decides her brother isn't so bad after all.

This play is based on the books by Kevin Henkes, tickets are on sale now through April 28th.  Contact The Mizel Arts Center for ticket info.


Disclaimer: I was not paid to review this play and my daughter was not compensated for her interview. All thoughts are her own.  I might have bribed her with chocolate to get her to speak but that is it.  No other compensation.  Thank you.


  1. Chocolate bribery could solve a lot of world issues....

  2. Such a sweet interview, love the dollar comment! :) I love those books, hoping this play comes close to us!

  3. "ah, what's an interview?" I love it!

  4. What!! How adorable. She's all diva like about the money and then "What's an interview?" LOL


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
