Saturdays with Stella*: Eggs and Hamadeus at Canada’s NAC

I’m really sorry about there not being a post yesterday  The reason why is that I was going to an NAC concert with my best friend! So I had to postpone the blog post to see it, because who wants to hear about my predictions! You want the actual event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (excessive use of exclamation marks!)

So yesterday afternoon I set out with my friend and her family to go to the NAC to see Green Eggs And Hamadeus.

The traffic was really bad so we spent a large period of time in massive traffic jams. We entertained our selves by looking at the spa bill boards (‘ What on earth are they doing to her!’) , reading How To Train Your Dragon books (‘ Hey, Hiccup and us are in the same boat: in the book Alvin the Treacherous gets the dragon jewel and a large line of evil buses cuts us of’) and listening to Rumor (‘As the song starts the younger siblings break out in a chorus of ‘ooooohhhhh’s from the back seat’) until we finally reached the NAC parking garage, leaving the mobs of canal skaters behind.

We finally found a good parking spot and ran to the foyer. We were very late so we didn’t have any time for Tunetown.(Boo Hoo Hoo). So we hurried to the concert hall and took our seats.

The lights died down and the conductor and the concert master came out. The show started with music by Mozart (which was cool because I could recognize most of it). Then the green eggs and ham part came. There were two actors and they sung everything they said. It was pretty funny because they were very emotional about the ham. Eventually the grown- up tried the ham and decided that it was the best thing she had ever tasted. I think that this is the best concert I have ever seen and I would definitely recommend it to any one from ages 4-12.

Well thank you for taking the time to read this article. Have a great week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(excessive use of exclamation marks!)

*Stella is my 10-year-old daughter and on Saturdays, I let her rent this space from me because she thinks blogs are cool. It is her hope that her writing will appeal to kids her age as well as to the adults who read here too. (For the intro to Saturdays with Stella, click here.)


  1. Sounds great Stella. Guess what? I just got a part in the play Amadeus! Not as funny as Green Eggs and Hamadeus, but should still be fun. I play Mozart’s wife.
