Activities and Outings

The Short List: Oct 20-22

With the rain expected to continue throughout the weekend, my family is looking forward to some indoor fun! So far we’ve planned opening day of Judy Moody & Stink: The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Treasure Hunt at Oregon Children’s Theatre on Saturday and then a fun baking class (sugar skull piñata cookies!) at Collective Kitchen on Sunday, but here are some other ideas we have:

Alice in Wonderland Jr with Journey Theatre Arts Group

Travel down the rabbit hole and join Alice, one of literature’s most beloved heroines, in her madcap adventures. Featuring updated songs from Disney’s thrilling animated motion picture, Disney’s Alice in Wonderland Jr. is a fast-paced take on the classic tale.

The ever-curious Alice’s journey begins innocently enough as she chases the White Rabbit. Her adventures become increasingly more strange as she races the Dodo Bird, gets tied up with Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum, raps with a bubble-blowing Caterpillar and beats the Queen of Hearts at her own game! Ridgefield High School, 2pm (playing through Oct 29). $11-$25,
