“The perfect weekend outing for kids aged 4 to 10 and their grown-ups!” raves the Santa Monica Mirror WHAT’S HOT. “Top Picks for Los Angeles” says gocitykids.com. Interactive story-telling, sing-a-longs, crafts, face-painting, acting out a fairytale, theatre games, refreshments and special surprise gifts make this delightful Santa Monica Playhouse special event a wonderful weekend experience for kids ages 4 to 10 and their adult companions. Grandchildren coming for Presidents’ Day weekend? Moms and Dads want to do something together with their kids? Enchanted Fairytale interactive theatre is just the thing to give kids the chance to make new friends, improvise, make handicrafts, sing, dance, and act out a story, working with members of Actors’ Repertory Theatre, Santa Monica’s professional acting company, as they take the stage for 90 minutes of pure theatre fun. Hosted by the gaily costumed Enchanted Fairytale Players, these events only take place a few times a year, so make your reservations right away. Parents work as partners throughout this adorable acting adventure, taking an active role in all aspects of the program as everyone shares their personal perspectives on the day’s fairytale, plays fun games that develop the imagination, and works with crafts to create props which are used in the final presentation. “I couldn’t believe it! I had just as much fun as my son!” says mom S. McDaniel. Space is extremely limited and reservations are a must. With complimentary refreshments and a special surprise gift for each participant, it’s the perfect event for the whole family to enjoy. Santa Monica Playhouse programs are sponsored in part by the the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Commission, the Ahmanson Foundation and Playhouse PALS.
