Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s book Where the Wild Things Are has been sparking children’s imaginations for decades. Many Toronto moms loved the story as kids, and have shared it with their own children. During the month of March, Young People’s Theatre is bringing the adventure to life. So, if you are wondering what to do in Toronto with the kids this month (or over March Break), book your tickets now.
What to do in Toronto this March
Attending a production at Young People’s Theatre (YPT) is always a memorable experience for kids of all ages. The main goal of YPT is to bring together creative, professional and high quality productions, that are suitable for young children and their families. This spring’s production of Where the Wild Things Are will have the members of the audience actively participating in the play. Audience members will join Max and actually become “wild things”. The true beauty of YPT is how their imaginative costumes and props transport children into distant lands.
For this production, the audience will actually be seated on mats, instead of in traditional theatre seating. The show is ideal for younger children, aged three to seven. If you’re wondering what to do in Toronto to introduce your little ones to live-theatre in a kid-friendly way, this show is a fabulous choice. Where the Wild Things Are launched yesterday (March 4) and will continue to run through March 30, 2014. During March Break YPT will offering two performances each day, to accommodate the high demand. It’s a great way to have a little bit of fun while the kids are out of school
