My three year old son has been seeing shows at The Puppet Co. Theatre for about a year and loves them all.  I’ve learned that I can’t tell my son too far in advance that we are going to see a puppet show because he becomes reluctant to do anything else because he wants to be sure he won’t miss even a minute of the show.

When we opened up our shipment of Modarri Cars to play with for this review, there was an audible “Woah!” from both my 10 and 7 year old boys. And, there’s little doubt why: these cars are cool in basically every way - design, look and feel, playability, complexity and durability.

When my children and I first walked into the Olney Theatre to see the Pirates of Penzance I wasn’t sure we were in the right place.  Although we arrived just a few minutes before the show was scheduled to begin, no one was lined up ready to file into the theatre and no one was sitting quietly in their seats.  Instead, there were beach balls flying everywhere and roving musicians playing guitars singing and interacting with the crowd.  Everyone was having a great time and I even spotted some parents having an adult beverage.

Nearly everyone is familiar with the story of the Wizard of Oz, yet is told time and time again.  It is not an easy task to make the story seem fresh and new.  Synthetic Theater’s production thoroughly reimagines the tale of Oz in a completely unexpected way, while still retaining all of the classic elements of the story that has allowed it to remain a beloved story generation after generation.

Cirque du Soleil is known for being other-worldly and fantastical. The current production now in Baltimore, Crystal, does not disappoint and is a great choice for those who would like to introduce their children to the world of Cirque du Soleil. Crystal is a little different than other Cirque du Soleil shows. It is performed entirely on ice and rather than relying solely on live music, Crystal also features music from Beyoncé and U-2.

Chances are you are already familiar with the characters from Peanuts, but you’ve probably never seen them live on stage before.  Seeing Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Sally, and Schroeder come to life (and even give high-fives to the audience) is a treat for Peanuts fans new and old.

I don’t know any parent who doesn’t struggle with childcare at some point, whether it’s difficulty finding a babysitter, an unpredictable schedule for freelance work or a side hustle, a deadline that is looming, or just to enjoy some quiet time to catch up on a to-do list.  It’s not an easy problem to solve, but we are fortunate that a few area parents recognized this gap that needed to be filled and stepped up to provide co-working spaces with child
