Adventure Theatre has impeccable timing. Just as we officially welcome fall this weekend, they are beginning a whole new season of children’s theatre on their stage in Glen Echo Park. And they are starting it off with a show based on a beloved classic perfect for this time of year: Blueberries for Sal.
Robert McCloskey’s story about a little girl and her mother going blueberry picking as a mama bear and its cub gather berries on the other side of the hill in preparation for hibernation has been adored by readers for 70 years. Adventure Theatre is celebrating the anniversary with this world premiere production, a musical that is a heartwarming mother-child tale to which parents and grandparents alike will relate. (And the score is by the same composer who did Caps for Sale in 2016!)
Blueberries for Sal opens at Adventure Theatre September 21 and runs through October 21. Tickets are $20, but this Friday’s opening show is a Pay-What-You-Can performance with free milk and cookies (cash only at the door)! Tickets can be purchased online or at the Box Office. Recommended for all ages.
