For me it has been that weird holiday week. You know the one where you don’t really remember what day of the week it is, and PJs are the outfit of the day… after day… after day? And it has been glorious fun, with the kids playing with all of their new toys. Except the Lego spread all over the carpet. One missed piece at clean-up can ruin your night (ouch!!)
But it’s also time to put on pants and get back to a regular sleep schedule so I can function at work next week (okay… after New Year). And the best way to get motivated to go out is to make some plans to go to the theatre. It’s my week to let you know what has caught my eye, so take a look at my picks in ‘red’. Spoiler alert – it’s pretty family-friendly! It’s a great week to take kids to get some theatre experience!
Mooney on Theatre wishes you all a very Happy New Year! See you next decade!

Winter is not my season. It is starting to get cold and windy outside, and my hibernation instincts are kicking into high gear. All I want to do is make a blanket fort with my kids and snuggle in until spring! So when I do leave my house, I want to go somewhere warm. And my favourite warm place to go is the theatre.
Lucky for me there is just so much going on this holiday season that it’s easy to get out to see a great show. There are so many family-friendly options that I can bring the whole family along with me if I wish, or just plan for a great date night out! Check out my own ‘reds‘ below for the shows that have caught my attention and tempt me to get out of the blanket fort and into the snowy air.
