It Must Be Spring

The Sun-Sentinel posted a bunch of listings for Children's Theatre taking place through the month of May.
It's a surprisingly long list of productions, even considering that they range from Jupiter down to Coral Gables. They don't include the National Children's Theater Festival at Actors' Playhouse at the Miracle Theater, or Family Fun Day at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts, which occur this weekend, the last weekend of April. But both events are worth catching. The Actors' Playhouse event features the World Premiere of PAINT! Marc Chagall's Musical Adventure. Family Fun Day revolves around Don't Let The Pigeon Drive The Bus, a production that has traveled from Britain.
But there's one show that is stands out on this list: somehow, the Actors' Playhouse production of THUMBS! ended up on the list. I guess the Sun-Sentinel didn't read their own blurb, which reads:

Follow two cunning women, from two very different walks of life, who use
all of their wit and will to survive a game with a devious killer...

Doesn't that sound like a real treat for the kiddies? I guess they saw the serial killer's name, and made a stunning leap of logic. The killer's name? Tom Thumb. I suspect the name isn't related to his...stature.

The rest of the shows, thankfully, belong on the list. And at least one of these shows is bound to be convenient to you. Go on, see a show.
