Five Reasons Your Family Will Love THE STINKY CHEESE MAN and other fairly stupid tales at the Arden Theatre

Last weekend I had the chance to see the latest children's show at the Arden Theatre called The Stinky Cheese Man & other fairly stupid tales.  As a teacher and a mom I was familiar with the story and knew that it would bring a lot of laughs.  I loved that the show made sure the adults were entertained too with jokes and even a little Beyonce.  The show appeals to your whole family no matter how old they are.  Below are 5 reasons your family will love The Stinky Cheese Man and other fairly stupid tales

1. Arden Children’s Theatre is top-notch. They’ve been doing shows for kids for 16 years and put the same resources into their Children’s Series Shows – professional actors, designers, sets, etc. – that they do for their Mainstage shows. And this one’s a musical…added bonus!

2. The Stinky Cheese Man takes classic stories that all children know and mixes them up in wacky ways. Your kids will get that the stories are all parodies of the original (even though the main character doesn’t,) and they’ll love being in on the joke.

3.Your kids won’t know that they are learning…but they are! Live theatre enhances literary knowledge (this one is based on a book) and increases tolerance and empathy. What parent doesn’t want that?

4.Post show Q&A and meet & greets with the cast give kids the chance to ask questions like, “Was that really supposed to happen?”, “Is your tail real?” and “How much do you make?”

5. Belly Laughs. Lots of them. Probably centered around a giant cow patty. And really, is there any better sound than hearing your kids belly laugh?
