Magical world for storytime

Deep within the revitalized Glen Echo Park now full of artisans and craftsmen lies a wonderful, hidden gem known as Adventure Theatre, a theater known for putting on quality family entertainment. I had the opportunity to see their latest production, Miss Nelson is Missing, a story about a misbehaving class, a mysterious substitute teacher (Ms. Viola Swamp), and a powerful lesson learned-- that nearly every elementary school age student has probably checked out of the library at one time or another. Indeed, my son cowered behind me as he asked the ticket taker if Ms. Viola Swamp was inside-- he certainly didn't want her as a substitute! What the lesson the children learned that day is, I'll never tell, but know that the energetic and enthusiastic cast greeted everyone outside the exit doors and if your children bring copies of the book (or buy it there) the cast will gladly sign it and pose for pictures. Fun for the whole family. I highly recommend it. Get tickets in advance, as the auditorium only seats about 250.

The puppet shows are great for kids (under five) but best suited for even younger. The shows are funny and fast paced.
