Some Island Frolic(k)

SavvyMom March 31, 2016

This summer, we suggest you venture off the beaten path and take in Frolick’€™s Adventures in Slumberland at Toronto Island’s hidden gem, The Lagoon Theatre.
From Wednesday to Sunday until August 26, hop on a ferry and catch a performance that’s out of this world (or at least feels like it). Adapted from Winsor McCay’s turn-of-the-century comic strip Little Nemo in Slumberland, and presented by enchantingly creative theatre company Frolick, Adventures in Slumberland offers an Alice-in-Wonderland-type feel with circus-like puppetry, magnificent masks and a soundtrack that’s catchy enough for everyone in the family to appreciate.

The producers had short attention spans in mind when they created the play in four half-hour segments’€”perfect for small kids (and small bladders). We love the daytime-only show times, with the last performance beginning at 2:15 pm. There’€™s still time for a picnic, a trip to the beach or a visit to the island amusement park.

So take them on a boat ride, an island adventure and some outdoor theatrical fun.

There’s still so much to do this summer, including going to one of these 5 Outdoor Theatres in Toronto.
