While back to school means end of summer, It also means FALL is around the corner, and it’s time to think about ways to keep your kids active, stimulated, and creating! We are so lucky there are so many amazing programs (think music, sports, the arts, and more) all available locally! Check some of these out, and get moving!

Calling all actors! Mother Goose land is in an uproar! After a long and illustrious career Mother Goose decides to retire and informs the inhabitants that they must hold an election to determine her successor. Old King Cole, Mary Contrary, the Queen of Hearts and Humpty Dumpty all vie for the office as their supporters busily campaign for their favorites. The local press follows the proceedings with breathless coverage until the candidates finally learn that they must all work together to insure the continued health and success of Mother Goose Land. All your favorite Mother Goose characters stage a big farewell concert for Mother Goose as she heads off to a beach house in the Bahamas for a well-deserved rest. Learn to sing, dance and act as you have fun putting on this fully-costumed, lively musical. **No experience necessary and everyone gets a part!)
