If you’re looking for Fun Things to do in Los Angeles with Kids now that the sun is finally out. Take ’em to see A Faery Hunt. A Faery Hunt takes children and their families on an interactive theatrical experience and takes place in forests and parks. And we would love to send one family to experience the magic with our “A Faery Hunt” ticket giveaway below.
A Faery Hunt has been enchanting audiences in Southern California for the past 11 years. They are the winner of the Nickelodeon’s Parents’ Pick Award for “Best Children’s Theater in Los Angeles”, named “Best of Hollywood” by the Hollywood Reporter, named “Best of LA” by LA Parent and Los Angeles magazine.
A few times a year A Faery Hunt comes indoors at the Whitefire Theatre in Sherman Oaks and the Sunset Theatre Company in Redondo Beach. Seasonal shows are also performed yearly at Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden.
WHAT TO SEE AT “A FAERY HUNT”
With the help of the faery folk, the children and their families go to Fairyland and embark on magical interactive adventures. In a gentle and fun way, the audience actually becomes part of each story. The shows are for children, boys and girls, and the young-at-heart. Most of the children come in costume. There is something for the whole family in the interactive original shows. The tales carry simple life-messages including kindness, forgiveness, respect for nature, keeping a positive attitude, love for one another and to have fun. Groups and birthdays are welcome at all events. Private birthday parties are also available.
