Things to do in Houston with kids, Main Street Theater

About the Theater:

The Main Street Theater is a great way to expose your children to the arts.  Their youth productions are based off of children's books. You can purchase tickets for your family or schedule a group event such as a school field trip.  The theater requires all children to be ages three and older. If parents expose their children to the theater, they are more likely to develop an appreciation for the arts. The theater is important for young children for a number of reasons.  Aside from entertainment, children learn from the experience as well.  They are able to make connections to books, stories, and characters.  A play has the ability to jump a story off of a page and bring it to life.  Plays are great for the imagination, and they also help to lengthen your child's attention span. The sooner you start to take your child to the theater, the better it will help him or her.  It's great to establish a love for the theater at an early age.  By bringing your child to the theater, you are sparking their creativity.  Children who think creatively are likely to have careers that tap into the right brain by inventing or creating things of their own. The theater is a great way to increase vocabulary, improve communication skills, help with listening skills, and assist with memory and concentration.  Live performances are fun, interesting, entertaining, and educational.  

Here is a list of upcoming productions:

  1.  Lyle the Crocodile
  2. Bridge to Terabithia
  3. Junie B. Jones:  The Musical
  4. Harriet the Spy
  5. Magic Tree House:  A Night in New Orleans
  6. Shrek The Musical
The Main Street Theater shows are a blast, and your kids are sure to love them.  I have been taking my son since he turned three years old, and he has enjoyed every performance.
