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 Strawberry Shortcake with the Doodlebops at NYCB Theatre at Westbury. For $26, you get one G-Pass for seating in section F, rows N–V, on Sunday, March 10, at 1 p.m. (up to a $52 value, including ticketing fees). Doors open at noon. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
In their singing, dancing, live-action debut, the adorable denizens of Berry Bitty City pull out all the stops for the town’s highly anticipated Glitzy Glaze Talent Show. Strawberry Shortcake and her best friends––Orange Blossom, Lemon Meringue, Cherry Jam, Raspberry Torte, Plum Pudding, and Blueberry Muffin––get together in the fruity flesh to win over audiences with catchy songs, unyielding sweetness, and by making it rain Monopoly money. Taking the stage before Strawberry Shortcake and company, native Canadians Rooney, Moe, and Deedee Doodle of the cartoon band the Doodlebops draw excitement and laughter with kid-friendly rock ‘n’ roll, colorful makeup, and their drummer’s incessant hiding, which always has the band wondering, “Uh oh, where’s Moe?”<p> <iframe width="450" height="243" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/1iHzqGzlPv0" frameborder="0" allowFullScreen="allowFullScreen"></iframe>
Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app.
NYCB Theatre at Westbury
More than half a century ago, three partners raised a vibrant, multicolored tent on an underdeveloped industrial site and established the Westbury Music Fair. It followed its first production, The King and I, with a decade of top-name talent and Broadway musicals. Then, recognizing its place on the theater scene was permanent, it planted its roots as a fully enclosed theater-in-the-round. Expanding its repertoire to match its new digs, the theater showcased performers such as The Who, Bruce Springsteen, and Julie Andrews. Today, past a lounge blazing in purple and red lights, guests find that same circular stage hosting equally great musical acts and musical theater.
