Can Do Duck The Musical #CDDTM

Yum
 **I received a free tickets to facilitate this review. I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the FTC Regulations.
We were extremely lucky to head out and review a off Broadway musical this past weekend!! Nothing says New York City like going to see a show. My five year was especially excited because it was geared toward ages 3-11.
    This is based off the book "Can Do Duck" a  positive  motivational  musical  for children  and  families  about  believing  in  yourself  and  saying  “I  can”.  The  musical  follows  the  story  of  two  families,  a  human  family  and  a  duck  family,  as  they  learn  to  try  new  things,work  as  a  team  and  learn  to  love  and  accept  each  other  even  with  their  individual differences.
 We had a front row seat whilst Mclachlan was able to sit on the carpet with his new friends to watch the show. Nothing screams VIP like front row seating.
 They had a duck craft before they opened the doors to let us in and I fond this to be rather enjoyable. Little one's have a short attention span so keeping them entertained and busy helps with meltdowns. I really didn't see any meltdowns while we were there and I think it was because the crew took the time to engage the children.
 The musical itself starts off with a human family and flows into a parallel of a Duck family. These little duckling have just hatched and need to learn some valuable lessons from their Mother.
 How scary the world is from a little ducklings eyes. They have to learn to walk, talk, sing and fly. We can all relate, trying new things and not always succeeding.
 If you do not succeed, remember to make a plan and say you can!
This musical is jam packed with great morals, values, inspirational quotes to live by. You are learning while being entertained, what more could you ask for from a children's show? The cast preforms obstacles, trying new things, teamwork even how to deal with jealousy.
 In the end we learned that anyone can be a: "Can Do Duck"!
 The very end of the story the Human family is brought back together. I don't want to give to much away because it was the most meaningful for myself. I drew tears watching what kept this family apart. It is such a happy and emotional ending, one you do not see coming!
  What we liked: It is both child and adult entertaining. You laugh, smile and even cry. This is a well rounded musical that is worth the money!
What could be Improved: I wish I had known this was a true story before I watched it. Since I had not read the book the ending really hit home for me so because of that i was also glad I had not read it. Now, we own the book because it really is a great moral teaching story.
Overall Rating: *****!!

  12. How wonderful for kids! I love that they taught positive lessons with music. My kids sing "Daniel Tiger" throughout the day, so I know music really helps toddlers learn.
