Cape Cod Times: FunDay Fridays at the Playhouse this summer!

Cape Playhouse plans ‘FunDay FriDays’ kid series

The Cape Playhouse in Dennis is turning the end of the week into “FunDay FriDays!” this summer with eight shows in a “Playhouse for Kids” series.

A wide range of performers, offering a mix of full stories, comedy, magic and puppets are part of the program designed for pre-school age and older. There will be 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. shows each Friday from July 8 through Aug. 26, with performances lasting about an hour.

piratesThe lineup in July: July 8, Lucky Bob, a magician, juggler and comedian; July 15, “The Greatest Pirate Story Never Told,” described as “Pirates of the Caribbean” meets “Whose Line is it Anyway?”; July 22, “Cardboard Explosion!” a participatory show by Puppet Showplace Theater that involves dragons, superpowers and animal sidekicks; and July 29, SteveSongs, a show of fun and music with Steve Roslonek of “PBS Kids” shows.
