Ten Things About The Biggest Little House in the Forest

Back for the 2019 season, The Biggest Little House in the Forest is the best way to introduce really small kids to live theatre. We reviewed this play in 2015.

While there are been shows where I wished I had left the little ones at home. This is the show to take them to. Biggest Little House is recommended for ages 2 to 5, so I only took my 3-year-old. Through the whole show, I was wishing I had brought my older kids. It is definitely a preschool play, but I felt my older ones would have appreciated the puppetry and storytelling and possibly incorporated some of that into their own imagination play.

Mr. Popper’s Penguins at CTC — Review and Parental Guidance

Not for the first time, I left Children’s Theatre after Mr. Popper’s Penguins wishing that they sold soundtracks in their gift shop. I left the show singing, but by the time I got home, the song had morphed into some other song. Because the music was fun and catchy, I found this play to be a fun way to re-introduce my 4-year-old to live performances after a couple less-than-successful experiences.
