Laughter Yoga – at the Raleigh Little Theatre show “Really Rosie”

Look at this link for the official description of what laughter yoga is, but laughing is good for the body, the endocrine system, and the energy system.  It’s just plain fun, too!

Last night, we took some little ones to the show Really Rosie at Raleigh Little Theatre.  The play was written by Maurice Sendak(Where the Wild Things Are) and Carole King (Tapestry).  The dialog and action lasers in on the imaginitive play of children and the way the interact with each other. 

The chuckles started early and by the time of the second scene I was competing with two first graders and a kindergartner for who could laugh the loudest.  By the time one of the cast members called another “doo doo head,” we just exploded.  The songs were great – Carole King!  The singing was enchanting.  Afterwords, the first thing out of the five year old’s mouth was “I want to see Rosie again!” 

The kids met and talked with the cast and the girls had their pictures taken with Rosie.  The boy ran around like he was possessed with positive energy and insisted on taking one of the pictures himself. 

After frozen yogurt, we made our way home.  They are usually fast asleep but something about the nonstop laughing gave them so much energy they were still going strong when we left them in the care of their parents at 10:30 or so.  I think if I could do this every week I would grow two weeks younger for every show.  Maybe this is how Benjamin Button did it.

Find a kid and go to the show.  You’ll laugh your head off!
