    Anyone know what age group the Children’s Theater caters too? How young is “too young” for this?

    It’s a “participation play”, which suggests to me that 4 or 5 might be the minimum age to fully appreciate it, but younger ones might enjoy watching.

    I used to have a big dodge station wagon with a really wild 440, and I had four
    14″ speakers under the car facing down and fed with a 1200 watt amp.and we used to tool around playing “unacceptable” music or just make comments as we drove or stopped at lights.

    One of the songs I used to blast was “every man a king” and in some environs, like ocean parkway or up at Columbia, you’d be amazed how some of these grizzled old types from the 30’s would drop dead when they heard it. Of course I followed up with another tune about a youth taken away from evil influences which they a LOT MORE didn’t want to hear, but every man a king was enough believe me, HA wonderful memories…..
