Today we checked out Wolf Trap’s Children’s Theatre in the Woods. Wolf Trap National Park is the only national park dedicated to presenting the performing arts. The park has multiple amphitheatres including the Children’s Theatre in the Woods with performances from May-September. Wolf Trap National Park is located in the suburbs of Vienna, VA in Fairfax County.
Address: 1551 Trap Rd, Vienna, VA 22182
The Children’s Theatre is located in the woods and seating is general admission. Parking is available at the entrance of the Filene Center. You walk up a small hill and down to the ticket kiosk. Tickets can be purchased either online or at the ticket kiosk. Restrooms are available outside the theatre near the ticket kiosk. Food is not allowed inside the theatre but they have many benches around to have a snack or lunch. In between shows people would walk out and grab a snack then return to watch the second show. I’m surpised at the lack of bugs in the venue even though we were sitting in the middle of the woods.
We were lucky enough to be in the third row from the stage but there really wasn’t a bad seat in the house. Strollers are allowed up to the entrance of the theatre and then parked near a fence. The shows were aimed more towards the Kindergarten level but my little boys loved the show.
We’ll be headed back to Wolf Trap National Park for the Performing Arts!
