OWTK PHILLY LOCAL / So Much Time So Little To Do

An Evening (or afternoon) of Theater in Philly

Two terrific shows are wrapping up in Philadelphia, PA over the next couple weeks. Live theater is a thrill for children of all ages. More on that topic in the coming weeks…

The Arden Theater in Old City (2nd and Market St) is concluding their season with the hilarious STINKY CHEESE MAN and OTHER FAIRLY STUPID TALES. This play is based on the best selling book by Lane Smith. We would not recommend bringing children under the age of 6 or 7 as some of the humor may be lost on them. OWTK took two eight year olds and they had a wonderful time. They each spent the remainder of the day acting out their favorite scenes and quoting the funniest lines. HURRY! The show has already been extended once and officially ends this Sunday, June 11th.

The Mum Puppet Theatre on Arch St. is currently performing THE WIZARD OF OZ to rave reviews. The play features live actors and amazing puppetry to create an astonishing theatrical experience. Since this review in the Inquirer last weekend, tickets have been selling fast. If your plans have you and your kids in Philly between now and June 17th we would recommend that you visit Mum and take in this show. For tickets please contact the box office directly at 215-925-7686 as their web ticketing is not in real-time and may not accurately reflect current availability.

Both shows are performed in intimate spaces which will have your children very close to the action regardless of where your seats are located. Tickets will run you roughly $30 each, with kid’s prices at the Arden being about half that. A great value compared to big ticket, big theater shows that pack a punch but do not offer the up close theater experience. Stick around after the show at The Arden for a Q&A with the actors and set designers. The actors also make themselves available after the performance in the lobby to shake hands and greet your kids.

Enjoy the theater!
