Adventure Theater’s If You Give a Cat a Cupcake performance takes a classic tale by Laura J. Numeroff and brings it to life thanks to a lively performance in a small venue that’s fun for adults and kids alike.
- If you haven’t ever been before, the Adventure Theater site has helpful directions. Parking is free at Glen Echo. The parking lot is a little walk from the theater. Kids will love going across the bridge and looking at the water below but know that it is a slight uphill walk on the way there.
- Will call tickets aren’t actually tickets- they’re stickers! Upon providing your name at the box office, each member in your party will receive a sticker.
- If you arrive early, visit the playground, take a spin on the historic Dentzel Carousel (runs May-September, $1.25 per ride), or run in the open space to get the wiggles out. You can wait in the lobby but doors open about 5 minutes before the show and the lobby can be crowded and hot.
- Adventure Theater has open seating on bench style seats. No seat is a bad seat and all put kids close enough to the action. The first four rows in the center are reserved for birthday parties.
- Feel free to bring snacks to enjoy outside the theater. Tables in the shade the grounds of Glen Echo and a grassy area by the playground lend themselves to picnics during warm weather months. In case of impromptu playing, the Ballroom Café is open from March – October and offers sandwiches, fruit, baked goods, snacks, and drinks. Adventure Theater has also compiled a list of local restaurants.
