Children's theater is a great way to gently introduce kids to theater before they realize that most plays are just about sad guys talking. Get kid-friendly kicks with this GrouponLive deal to see a children’s show presented by Galli Theater at the National Comedy Theatre. For $17, you get one adult and one child admission to any upcoming play (up to a $37.50 value, including all fees). Shows run regularly on Saturday and Sunday at 2 p.m., with doors opening 30 minutes before showtime.
Through modern adaptations of beloved fairy tales, the Galli Theater instructs new generations in social issues while also entertaining them with familiar stories. In December’s main-stage production of Snow White, children learn important lessons about friendship, envy, and loyalty. Taking its roots from the original Bavarian fairy tale, the production raises questions about the hunter’s deal with a boar and Snow White’s stepmother’s obsession with beauty. Pint-sized viewers aren’t expected to sit quietly during the show, as the actors interact directly with the audience, even inviting children onto the stage to aid in the storytelling.
