Don't be suspicious of the capital "Z." It's not up to anything sinister . . . it's actually kind of whimsical . . . and this time of year, it provides a lot of free entertainment for kidZ . . . er . ..  Kids.

 

The Marcus Center's outdoor KidZ Stage rests playfully by the side of the river far back in a corner of the space taken-up by the performing arts complex. Starting today, Tuesdays through Thursdays, various local arts groups perform for kids at the KidZ stage. This morning's free performance comes to the stage courtesy of First Stage…the Children's theatre group will be performing on the stage a number of times over the course of the summer. As will Kohl's Wild Theater . . . an incredibly hip eco-educational theatre program for kids that normally makes its home in the Milwaukee county Zoo. 

 

All KidZ Days performances are at 10 am Tuesdays through Thursdays now through August 22nd.
