Peanut butter and jelly. Batman and Robin. Spaghetti and meatballs. There are some things that just go together. Wolf Trap’s Children’s Theatre-in-the-Woods proves that stage and stream is another one of these things.

Nestled near a tranquil creek and surrounded by tall trees in the woods at Wolf Trap National Park, the theatre has been a summer tradition for generations of kids and families. Here’s why your little ones will fall in love with this unique performance destination:

  • From a Spanish language sing-along to an interactive Jedi training show, the theatre is offering a seriously diverse selection of shows for kids this summer. The performances—which are all about an hour long and are perfect for the 4 and up-set—run from June 20 to August 5.
  • You don’t have to jet post encore! The theatre offers Stay and Play after the show, where families can play games, meet the artists and participate in free National Park Service activities.
  • If you’re looking for a unique summer birthday party idea, look no further. Bringing groups of 10-49 saves you 10%. Fifty or more in your party? You’ll save a whopping 20% on tickets. And, when you buy group tickets you don’t have to pay a service fee. Contact or 703-255-1851 to purchase your tickets today.

Now, that’s all worthy of a standing ovation.
