Friday’s are field trip Friday’s around these parts. Today we took a field trip to the store…yeah, that’s all I got lol. I have quite a few orders to fulfill this weekend, so we’re going to have to try again next week. However, last week we went to the Puppet Co. Playhouse to see Little Red Riding Hood and the 3 Little Pigs!
The description per their website:
What’s so bad about the Big Bad Wolf? At last B.B. (Big Bad) Wolfe tells his side of the story, in rap, no less. Has the notorious pork poacher and grandma impersonator gotten a bum rap, or is he truly deserving of his moniker? You be the judge! This is one of our funniest productions and includes lots of audience participation.
Now to be honest, it did NOT have a ton of audience participation. The great thing is that there is an area on the floor in front of the stage for the kids to sit if they wish, while their parents sit on the benches. Johanna started getting a little fidgety towards the end, but she still enjoyed it. It had really good messages mixed in, a rapping wolf, and a cute little set. Johanna said that the wolf was her favorite character, but when it was time to take a picture with him she wasn’t having it.
The great thing about Glen Echo Park is that there is still fun to be had after the show. We headed to the playground, then to the cafe to get donuts. And you know about the Carousel right? Loves it!
The show ends August 31. Tickets are a great price (we paid $10 per ticket). Run time is approximately 40 minutes. So if you find yourself looking for something to do with your little one before they head back to school, checkout the show. Another awesome show, Pinkalicious, is showing now as well if the puppet thing just isn’t for you. You can go here for tickets to both shows.
The park itself is gorgeous, and old fashion. I hope you go and really enjoy yourself, even if you don’t see a show.
