OLD TIME FAMILY DANCE
Are you so old that when you watch kids dance, you think they’ve got a horrible rash and can’t scratch the right spot? Well, maybe you need to bring your family out to a dance where you can do a little “do-si-do” and the like.
Such a place is the Old Time Family Dance, presented monthly by Children’s Music of Bath Brunswick at Bath Dance Works. It’s having one on the Friday of school vacation week, April 19, with fiddles blazing. The focus is on learning simple country dances.
Old Time Family Dance. 6:30 to 8 p.m. April 19. Bath Dance Works, 72 Front St. $3. 522-3900; email firstname.lastname@example.org
THE PLAY’S THE THING
Looking for a play the kids will like? Looking for a play where kids can actually play after the play?
Head to the Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine in Portland, where performances of “Country Mouse and the Missing Lunch Mystery” are running Friday through April 21.
In a twist on one of Aesop’s classic fables, it’s Country Mouse’s turn to serve lunch to his city cousin.
But the food keeps disappearing, and soon the characters have a mystery on their hands.
You can just go see the play for $9. Or for a $15 ticket, you can see the play and then hang around and play at the museum.
“Country Mouse and the Missing Lunch Mystery.” Various show times, Friday through April 21. Children’s Museum & Theatre of Maine, 142 Free St., Portland. $9; $15 for both theater and museum admission. 828-1234; kitetails.org
SPRING LIVE BIRD SHOW
Spring is in the air, and the birds are finally back. So what better way to celebrate spring and school vacation by seeing some live birds presented by the folks at Maine Audubon in Falmouth?
People will get to examine the birds up close while learning about their lives, food and more. Your children will be able to go back to school and tell their classmates they saw a live falcon or two.
Spring Live Bird Show. 10 a.m. April 19. Maine Audubon, Gilsland Farm, 20 Gilsland Farm Road, Falmouth. $15; $10 for children; $10 and $5 for members. 781-2330; maineaudubon.org
