Papaya Theater in Old City is all about doing special and amazing live theater for families. Plus their is a chance for kids to play in the Papaya interactive lab after the show.
On Saturday, February 7th at 5:00 p.m. we are all going to get together in Papaya’s comfy theater to see Miss Ophelia and we want you to come. Papaya is even giving HipsterHenry.com readers a 25% off promo code! General Admission tickets: $15.00 and children’s ticket: $9.00. Just use the code: PLAYDATE. Miss Ophelia has traveled all the way from the Netherlands and is only in town for one weekend. The show is 45 minutes long with plenty going on to keep their attention.
Ophelia is going to be a great actress who will travel the world – or at least that is what her parents want for her. When her tiny voice derails the dream, Ophelia stumbles upon a shadow that belongs to no one, and takes the solitary silhouette under her wing. When more shadows arrive, she tucks them into her little purse and soon, unlikely (and unforgettable!) friendships are forged as Ophelia and her sidekicks deliver extraordinary shadow puppet theatre.
Remember this is FAMILY theater which means you can give it a try and not be worried that your child’s inability to whisper or excitement will bother others. These shows are designed for children to love and for parents to enjoy. Was I terrified the first time I took my oldest at 2 yo to his first play? YES. But he did amazing and now going to plays has become a family favorite. I still spend most of the time watching my kid’s faces and how excited they are.
We hope to see you there on Saturday night February 7th at 5:00.
