The Wizard of Oz: A Live Performance by the Hampstead Stage Company
3:30 – 4:30 p.m., Saturday, April 13
Join Dorothy in this classic adaptation of L. Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz performed by a touring theater company. Dorothy Gale thinks she is lost forever when a terrifying tornado crashes through Kansas and whisks her far away to the magical Land of Oz. She must follow the yellow brick road to Emerald City and find the wonderfully mysterious Wizard of Oz. With her companions the Tin Woodman, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion whom she meets on the way, Dorothy embarks on a strange and enchanting adventure to find her way back home. Through this play, we hope to instill a sense of teamwork and confidence. Recommended ages 5+.

You can save yourself a lot of frustration if you know how your child’s brain is developing. Clinical therapist, Shaina Morton will unveil the changes that naturally occur in brain development, but can be bewildering if you’re unaware. Knowing that your 2-year-old can't logically talk anything out with you or that your 12-year-old’s reasoning is just starting to come online, or that your 16-year-old’s brain is shutting down and rebooting (and this makes them insane to live with ... but it’s normal) will change all your interactions. With a look inside their brains you will be a more compassionate and patient parent. Realizing your child isn’t intentionally being a jerk just to turn your hair gray, you’ll have something to grasp onto during those hairy moment. Shaina will also share some great tools for you to use to connect with your child to form even more attachment.
