Get Ready for a Summer of Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods at Wolf Trap!

Across a meadow, over a bridge, down a path, through the woods, and beneath the trees, lives a small but mighty theater that plays host to some of the best and brightest children’s artists from all over the world.

Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods, tucked behind the famous Filene Center and situated in Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts, is Northern Virginia’s premier children’s performing arts venue. Whether it’s epic storytelling, eye-popping puppetry, or engaging music and dance, every show is designed to ignite a lifelong love for the performing arts.

This summer, from June 18 – August 3, children of all ages and their families can go to Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods to enjoy a performance from local, national, and even internationally-inspired artists. There is a performance every Tuesday – Saturday at 10:30am, and concertgoers are encouraged to stay after the show, have a picnic, and enjoy free games and activities.

And after select performances at Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods, children can experience a free interactive workshop with the artist or enjoy outdoor activities with a National Park Ranger and earn their Junior Ranger Badge! Performances with post-show activities can be found here, and are indicated by special icons.

The 2019 Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods season kicks off June 18 with a crowd favorite: David Engel, with Willy Wonka’s Wondershow! Other highlights include inspirational hip-hop artist SaulPaul, yoga-themed performer Kira Willey, nationally-acclaimed artist and Wolf Trap regular Falu, and many more. Check out the full calendar for the rest of summer lineup.

Hope to see you in the woods!

This post is sponsored by Wolf Trap Foundation for the Performing Arts, however, I only promote programs, places, and events that I genuinely believe in and think will appeal to KFDC readers.
