Best Alternative to Saturday Morning Cartoons 

Olde World Theatre Company

There are a number of wonderful children's events on Saturday mornings, but perhaps the brightest of options are performances by the Olde World Theatre Company at The Belcourt. The local theatre troupe performs their take on classic children's stories such as The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland and Sleeping Beauty, bringing a zaniness worthy of Looney Tunes or Animaniacs to their performances with funny asides and knowledgeable, on-target local references. (In The Wizard of Oz, for instance, when the grouchy apple trees refuse to share their fruit with Dorothy, the Scarecrow threatens to call NES.) But in addition to being sharp, funny and clever, the performances are full of heart. Although there really is no place like home, the Olde World Theatre Company makes it worth leaving early on some Saturday morning. Tickets are just $6 per person and the shows are rollicking events, including both adult and children performers and calling for plenty of audience participation. Hansel and Gretel is up next for the company; the show opens Oct. 24. Call 300-0374 for more information. GALYN GLICK MARTIN & LINDSAY FERRIER
