Next Up in TADA's 2019/20 Season!

How to Eat Like a Child…

and other lessons in not being a grown-up

In this “kid’s guide to being a kid,” both children and adults will laugh along to comical numbers such as How to Torture Your Sister, How to Beg for a Dog, How to Understand Your Parents, How to Stay Home from School and many more. Just like The Dangerous Christmas of Red Riding Hood, TADA! was the first company to stage this musical in 1984 without any adult actors. It went on to be produced as a TV special starring Dick Van Dyke in 1991.
