Lots of Fun
Love that these shows are fairly short (as compared to regular shows at a theatre) and that my boys - and me - are getting exposed to a variety of performance styles. The Fitzgeralds were excellent performers for this family audience and the Native American welcome with drumming and singing was a pretty neat surprise!

A Square Purchase Review
The two entertainment groups - Curve Lake singer and Fitzgeralds - had a good spirit and were not the least put off by background noise/chaos - and were great performers.


All Children’s Stage shows begin at 4pm and last for approximately one hour. 

Our performances happen three times throughout the year. We strive for a mix of live performances that will offer families a taste of every style of stage performance.

See the performances below that we’ve brought to Lakefield in the past

This show is a rare combination of high-energy fiddling, mind-blowing step dancing, exceptional musicianship and genuine sibling connection that resonates with audiences of all ages. Check out the video below to see The Fitzgeralds in action at Appaloosa Festival.


Sunday February 4th, 2018 – Comedy in Motion with Bob Cates

He keeps the crowd laughing with fast paced comedy routines involving advanced juggling, wild unicycling and balancing skills, black light laser props, and an insane plate spinning finale that has to be seen to be believed. Watch these clips of Bob’s past performance for a small taste of how great this show will be!

Kids of all ages are always welcome and are expected to behave like children: to squirm, clap, change seats and squeal. Members of the audience are often invited to participate.

The Bryan Jones Theatre is a very comfortable, welcoming space where families can move around and enjoy each other as well as the show.
