I just bought tickets for AJ and me to a Sunday performance of “Aquarium” at Atlas Performing Arts Center. Atlas’s Arts for Young Audiences features programming for young people including bilingual shows, music, puppetry and theater. “Aquarium” is described as best for ages 1-5 and as follows:
Enter a fantastical island world where fish soar through the air, lemons light up the sky, and sheep go parading by. With gentle music, puppets, and props, guides Jack and Calypso lead children and caregivers in an interactive journey to a magical place of play.
In February, we went to Atlas for a showing of “Wake Up, Brother Bear.” It was absolutely charming, magical, interactive and engaging for 2-year-old AJ. He loved it, so I decided we’d return for more children’s theater. Having checked the Atlas calendar regularly since then, it appears they generally have at least one children’s production per month, with several showings.
There are eight showings of “Aquarium.” One is sold out:
- Wednesday, April 24, 10 a.m.
