Hey there little kids, big kids, young kids and old(er) kids!
I hope you have had a chance to visit Wolf Trap Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods this summer because it has had me up on my hind paws and howling like a wolf puppy! Wolf Trap has had some of the best family-friendly entertainment I have ever seen. Just last week I had the chance to see master puppeteer, Matthias Kuchta, perform The Wolf and the Seven Little Goats – a wolf pack favorite. Granny Winifred Wolf gave it two paws up!
Luckily, the Theatre-in-the-Woods season is not over yet. There are still several shows to see and many memories to make. Don’t miss The Okee Dokee Brothers and the Pushcart Players this week!
The Okee Dokee Brothers are my kind of people. They love the outdoors so much that they wrote their latest album, Can You Canoe?, while traveling down the length of the Mississippi river like a modern Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. They play such beautiful kid’s folk music that Out With The Kids blog writer, Jeff Bogle, writes, “Can You Canoe? is the best album for kids & families ever made." WHOA! Come “Take It Outside” with them Tuesday through Thursday, July 31 – August 2!
Friday and Saturday of this week, The Pushcart Players are bringing a classic fairytale to the woods. They are a premier touring theatre company for family audiences, and believe me, they’re sure to make you laugh until your fur curls. Watch them perform Happily Ever After…A Cinderella Tale with wit and charm. According to the Players, we will be “humming the hums and thinking the thinks all the way home!”
I look forward to seeing you back at Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods this week!
Your pen pal with paws,
