Iliana Garcia, Lauren VanSpeybroeck, and Alexis Harter in StinkyKids: The MusicalConsidering its title, and my unfamiliarity with the Britt Menzies books on which it’s based, I was uncertain what to expect going into Thursday’s Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse production of StinkyKids: The Musical. That title, for me, conjures up thoughts of the grotesque Garbage Pail Kids collector cards from the 1980s. Thankfully, though, the show's StinkyKids are nothing like those urchins, as was noted upon my first look at costume designer Gregory Hiatt’s colorful, playful choices for the six characters, with each six- or seven-year old child wearing a predominant color with accents – such as flowers or shapes – in another hue.

Tamarin Lawler, Stacy Phipps, Brad Hauskins, and Morgan Griffin in Tales of a Fourth Grade NothingI'm not personally familiar with author Judy Blume’s children's book Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, but judging by the almost-packed house for Saturday’s opening-day performance, I’m pretty sure many elementary-school students are. And based on the kids' relative silence and lack of fidgeting while observing the production, I’m guessing the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse’s stage production is, for them, just as much of a hit as the book.

Chris Causer, Brad Hauskins, Janos Horvath, Sarah Hayes, Nikki Savitt, and Antoinette Holman in How I Became a PirateWhile I’ve loved every children’s production I’ve reviewed at the Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse, How I Became a Pirate marks the first in which I wish I had the soundtrack to enjoy with my partner’s nine-year old daughter Madison on our way to and from school each day. With music and lyrics by Janet Yates Vogt and Mark Friedman (both of whom also wrote the musical’s book), the songs are worth revisiting for their singable melodies and enjoyable styles, particularly the calypso numbers and a speedy, staccato, complexly rhymed nod to Gilbert & Sullivan’s “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major-General.” After Saturday's performance of the show, in fact, Madison and I were singing lyrics from several of the songs on our car ride home, which I hope suggests how fun and memorable they are.

Danielle Barnes, Mariah Thornton, and Dani Westhead in Freckleface Strawberry: The MusicalThe Circa '21 Dinner Playhouse and director Kimberly Furness have done it again, crafting a family production that’s charming and a whole lot of fun for both the kids and the adults in the audience. My partner’s nine-year-old daughter Madison and I enjoyed Friday’s performance of Freckleface Strawberry: The Musical immensely, even though neither of us is at all familiar with the children’s-book character the show is based on.
