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 at Ruth Eckerd Hall. For $15, you get one ticket for seating in rows M–LL on Friday, February 8, at 6 p.m. (up to a $32.50 value, not including ticketing fees). Doors open at 5 p.m.
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>
