Mommy Poppins on Please Bring Balloons: “Full of Magic and Imagination”

Thank you to Mommy Poppins for coming to see Please Bring Balloons and for their awesome review!

The audience is invited to dance, shake maracas, fly, and create their own balloons during the show. We even had a snowball fight at one point. It’s completely interactive, making it a great option for first-time and very young theatergoers.

There were lots of giggles and smiles throughout, and even with just two actors and a small setting, the show builds the kids’ anticipation about what will come next, keeping them guessing and engaged throughout. It’s a sweet, magical adventure filled with animals, balloons, music, and twinkling lights–and easily my 4-year-old’s favorite show in the last year.

Love That Dog — Midtown West
Saturday, February 18-Sunday, March 5
Ages 8 and older
New York City Children’s Theater’s other winter production is aimed at school-age audiences, a stage adaptation of Sharon Creech’s book of the same name, which was inspired by the late Walter Dean Myers’ poem “Love That Boy.” Jack doesn’t like to write, and constantly resists his teacher’s urgings to try. But as she feeds him various prompts, he discovers he actually has a lot to say, especially about his beloved canine. It’s a celebration of unlocking the creativity we all have deep within.

Love That Dog

Featuring the poetry of Robert Frost, William Carlos Williams, and Walter Dean Myers, Love That Dog is a contemporary story about discovering the power of your own voice. Based on the book by award-winning author Sharon Creech.
