Enchantment Theatre Co.
Hipster Henry PLAY-DAY
SATURDAY, DECEMBER 19TH 2:00 P.M.
I have been taking the boys to children’s play in the city since they were two. It started with me begging Arden to let us come to a performance during one of their many school trip performances. From there we were hooked. I am not going to say that I was not prepared for the boys to loose it at any moment but armed with a sticker book for intermission and some secret lollipops I gave it a shot. Since then we have discovered PAPAYA Theatre Co. in Old City and Enchantment in Center City.
If just me mentioning children’s theater makes you cringe, I get it, but I also know that means you have not see these theaters in action.
Since the boys do love going to see plays it has turned into something special our family does. Which now makes me a theater pusher, but I do know taking a little one to a dark theater where they can’t really talk is intimidating. This is why I am doing another Hipster Henry PLAY-DATE. This time we are doing it with Enchantment Theatre Co. and their world premier play of Peter Rabbit Tales. A Hipster Henry PLAY-DATE is where we pack the theater full of families that are trying live theater for the first time with their little ones in addition to pint sized regulars like mine. This is the best time to give it a shot and discover how the actors really can keep your child’s attention. If you are like me you will find yourself watching your kids more than you watch the actual play. Kids get excited and they yell, they ask questions that the entire audience can hear… yes that is going to happen and at children’s theater that is par for the course but most the time everyone is so interested in the play that no never hear a peep.
Join us this Saturday for Peter Rabbit Tales at Enchantment Theater at the corner of South and Broad at the Arts Bank building at 2:00 p.m. Enchantment has also been kind enough to offer all Hipster Henry readers 35% off the ticket price when you enter the promo code PETERHH at check out!
