I keep telling everyone that Columbus is the best-unknown big city. With limited public transit or a lack of a “big 3” major sports team (GO JACKETS!), we just don’t seem to be a prototypical big city. However, Columbus has so much to offer young families and that includes our performing arts for our kids. CATCO is KIDS, previously known as Phoenix Theater for Children, is one of the best programs for our kids. When thinking of a day out with the kids, most think of taking them to the movies or a sporting event. I propose you start checking out the theater shows by CATCO. They entertain the kids the entire time, and are relatively inexpensive.
Last season I took my kids to see Hansel and Gretel. This past weekend Columbus Dads Group member Steve Parpart took his girls to see Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Each time the kids loved it and were glued to the stage. Take an afternoon or evening and share the theater with your kids, it certainly beats sitting in front of the TV! Goldilocks is running now through January 22nd! Get your tickets here, you won’t be disappointed.
UPDATE: Use the code PORRIDGE to get all remaining tickets for only $10!
