Summer Bucket List alert!  The Renwick’s newest exhibit, No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man, is something you should add to your “to-do” list this summer (or fall/winter).  The first floor is on display through September 16, 2018 and the second floor through January 21, 2019.  The pieces scattered about the surrounding neighborhood are on display through December 2018.

It’s not hard to relate. It’s the first day of Third Grade and Judy Moody has had the most boring summer... and has nothing to wear! She’s certain that all of the other kids will show up wearing shirts from their favorite summer destinations, but Judy has to settle for plain stripes.

If asked, I have no doubt that The Big Bad Wolf would wholeheartedly agree with Frank Harte’s statement that “Those in power write history, while those who suffer write the songs.”    Condemned by the history books of being guilty of property destruction by the Three Little Pigs and of attempted homicide by Little Red Riding Hood, the Big Bad Wolf uses song to tell his tale of suffering in the Puppet Co. Theatre’s production of Little Red Riding Hood and The Three Little Pigs.

I don’t use the terms “squeals of delight” or “laugh out loud” often, but there is no other way to describe the sounds of pure happiness and joy that filled the room full of toddlers watching Balloonacy.  Balloonacy is a one-man show expertly geared towards young children.  The performer is accompanied only by live music and a big red balloon which plays an important role in his solo birthday celebration.  There are no words in the show, which relies heavily on physical humor, general silliness, and the element of surprise throughout.

ARTECHOUSE is at it again this spring, this time with SAKURA YUME // Cherry Blossom Dream.  The cherry blossom is the quintessential icon of spring in the DC metro area, so what better way to celebrate the season, than will an interactive, visually-appealing exhibit?

This year marks 40 years of the Big Apple Circus and the show reflects 40 years of perfecting this amazing performance. My kids had never been to a circus before. I showed them the video on bigapplecircus.com and another teaser from YouTube. They could not wait to go.

In its latest production, Imagination Stage combines Mark Twain, Bollywood dancing, magical jewels, and the toppling of a dictatorship - and somehow makes that all work. It’s a nuanced tale that might be best for big kids and more mature little kids. But even younger theatergoers will appreciate the shoulder-shimmying singing and dancing.

If there was ever a story made for the ice, it has to be Frozen. Disney on Ice took the beloved movie and translated it, nearly scene-for-scene, perfectly on the ice. Even if you think you can't watch the movie one more time, you will not be disappointed by watching Elsa, Anna, Olaf, and Sven act out Frozen on the ice. In fact, anyone who loves Frozen should not miss the opportunity to see everyone’s favorite sisters show what true love really means for themselves.

Stepping into the Puppet Co. Theater in Glen Echo park is like stepping back in time - to a time and place that is rapidly disappearing.  While new activities for children often try to wow them with technology and special effects, The Puppet Co. Theatre stays true to a time-honored way of entertainment that has stood the test of time for generations.

Grab your passport, pack your bags and set off on a transcontinental adventure.  Except, you’re not heading to the airport.  Your heading to the newest indoor haven for kids called Scramble.  Pick your destination.  Perhaps you want to uncover (literally) tombs in ancient Egypt or rocket yourself to the moon.  My personal favorite is trying to catch leprechauns in fields of shamrocks.  Indeed, parents can partake in the fun and frankly…it’s too irresistible not to!

If the sound of my son’s laughter while watching The Nutcracker could have been recorded, I am certain that all performances of this fun, lively performance would be sold out in minutes.

Everyone knows the classic yet creepy German fairy tale Hansel & Gretel.  It tells the story of two siblings who find a gingerbread house in the forest only to be kidnapped by the home’s hungry witch.

One day at work my colleague mentioned that I take my child to a lot of places.  Yes, I replied because when you have child, you need to keep them active.  On most weekends you will find my family on the road.  Having been to Annmarie Sculpture Garden & Arts Center when my child was a toddler and it was springtime, I wanted to return for their holiday light show.  Mind you, people thought I was crazy to drive nearly 1 ½ hours when there are light shows much closer to home.
