“Amazing kids theater - nothing like it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

If you are in the area with children -- whether as a visitor or living nearby -- this is a "must do". The shows are fun, fresh and filled with music. There are no bad seats. The "worst" seats are 8th row. You get to meet the actors afterwards. Parking is easy (right next door). There are subscriptions or individual show tickets.

“Great for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

They put on a good show, the kids will love it, and the price is usually right. They also have a nice gift shop and eatery in the theatre lobby.

“great children's theater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

what a wonderful theater in downtown Bethesda! The children's programming is excellent as are all their special events. The theater is metro accessible and there is ample parking in the area. Plenty of family friendly restaurants if you are making a day of it!

“A great place for younger kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I love the shows - we always bring visiting kids - a great break from playgrounds and restaurants. Well prepared shows, with just the right amount of story to keep young kids engaged.
