Theatre shows, Orchestras and more...

When was the last time you took your child to a play/live performances, an orchestra or you have never done it before? Too expensive or totally have no idea that there are many such performances specially catered to children?

Well, it is about time you give it a try because it is a wonderful experience with lots of educational benefits for children.

The puppet shows/plays are wonderful and they engage with the audience all the time. Beautiful puppets are used and the actors are great. I started taking Reese to these plays 2 years ago. We saw 'The Giraffe can't Dance' and then early this year 'Elmer the Patchwork Elephant'.

These shows are brought in by Gardner & Wife.

Now 'The Selfish Crocodile' is showing till 22nd October 2011. Ticket prices are not very expensive. Starting as low as Rm45. You can get tickets online from here.

I always thought that orchestra performances are not very child friendly but I was dead wrong. There are many that cater to children and families. If you visit MPO's website and click under family fun concert, you will see some very interesting concerts. Again, ticket prices are not very expensive considering the kind of exposure you children can get from it.

I am planning to take Reese to 'Bach to the Future' concert. He has never been to one yet. Can't wait!

Hi, I totally agree with your post. My son's kindergarden arranged for a school trip to the Kids Threatre by Gardner and Wife to watch the Selfish Crocodile recently. It's really worth watching. Do you know when is the next show?
