Jack and the Beanstalk at the Puppet Co. Theatre
The Puppet Co. Theatre – Jack and Beanstalk Whenever we are anywhere near Glen Echo Park my four year old son tells everyone around that we are near “where the puppets live.” He loves going to The Puppet Co. Theatre and gets so excited whenever I take him to a show. He is convinced that puppets live in one of the yurts in Glen Echo Park and come out to perform for him. The story opens with Jack and his over-protective mother discovering that the cow they rely on for their livelihood, Penelope, has stopped producing milk. Jack tells his mother not to worry because one day he will be rich. His mother tells him that he needs to “get up and do something about his dreams.” Before Jack has time to jump into a get-rich quick scheme, Penelope the cow runs away when she finds out she is destined to become pot roast. Jack searches for Penelope and finds her in the house of a mysterious man who offers him a treasure in exchange for the cow. Jack turns down a love potion and invisibility cloak in favor of a bag with which the man seems reluctant to […]

Winnie the Pooh is a classic character that has been embraced by generations of children for good reason. Pooh and his friends are lovable and relatable to young children. Adventure Theatre-MTC brings Pooh to life with warmth, authenticity, and humor. When entering the the theatre, your may have to restrain your child from running on the stage. Adventure Theatre has created a world any child would love to enter, complete with a swing, sandbox full of colorful toys, a hollowed-out log used as a tunnel, and a dream tree-house. In Adventure Theatre-MTC’s version, Pooh joins his friends Piglet, Roo, Owl, Rabbit Kanga, Eeoyre and Christoper Robin on several adventures in 100 Acre Forest. You may want to tell your child ahead of time that Tigger is not in the play since the stories presented during the play are based on early Pooh stories before Tigger was introduced. Throughout the play, Piglet tries to avoid being washed, a scheme is hatched to fool Roo, Eeoyre is depressed because not only has he lost his tail but no one has remembered his birthday, and everyone is concerned about a Heffalump. Of course by the end, everyone is happy – including Eeoyre. The […]
Queens of Egypt at National Geographic
Queens of Egypt at National Geographic The National Geographic Museum frequently hosts kid-friendly exhibits and The Queens of Egypt is the most recent exhibit to be put on display that will appeal to DC area families. Many children are naturally drawn to learning about Egyptian mythology, mummies, and hieroglyphics. The Queens of Egypt exhibit has everything kids love about the ancient kingdom but with a twist – instead of focusing on the male rulers of Egypt, the women rulers take center stage. The exhibit includes a short film about the history of women rulers in Egypt, which included seven queens and more than 300 incredible artifacts, including monumental sculptures, sparkling jewelry, and impressive sarcophagi. There are also videos scattered throughout exploring both royal life and the roles of women in everyday life in Ancient Egypt. The exhibit also includes several interactive exhibits including an ancient Egyptian game, a station where visitors can spell out their name in hieroglyphics, jars full of the smells of ancient Egypt, and others. The centerpiece of the exhibit is the 3-D virtual tour of one of the best preserved tombs in the Valley of the Queens. Visitors put on 3-D glasses and stand still […]
