I was very impressed at the quality of the facilities at Imagination Stage.  This is a first-rate theater which is perfectly tailored toward kids and their parents.  Booster seats were available so the little ones can have a good view.  There is a room on the side where restless kids can get their energy out without being disruptive to the show.  The cafe and gift shop, though we didn't stop in, looked very nice.  Apparently, they do all kids of performing arts classes and workshops for kids too.  Probably a little inconvenient since Bethesda is a bit of a drive from Arlington, but certainly a great resource for local MoCo families.  My one star deduct is for their performance of "Dr. Doolittle," which I tho...

This theater company used to be housed inside White Flint Mall until it moved to this space in 2003. The "new" location is impressive for what is a children's theater-- everything is state-of-the-art. They really have thought of everything. If a young audience member gets too loud, he or she can be moved to "the quiet room" which is a gla...
