The Stinky Cheese Man On Stage, Arden Children's Theatre, Philadelphia, Review & Giveaway

The Stinky Cheese  Man at Arden Theatre Company

If you're looking for an evening out in Philly for the whole family, I have found the event for you! Trust me. We just saw a truly hilarious, kid and parent friendly stage production of The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales at The Arden Theatre Company in Old City Philadelphia. 

The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales On Stage

Arden Children's Theatre has been doing shows for kids for sixteen years, with the same quality resources going into their kid-friendly shows as they put into their Mainstage shows. The effort and talent in this particular show is no exception. From the gorgeous, colorful set

designs, to the superb talent of the actors, The Stinky Cheese Man was an absolute delight from beginning to end. The show, mirroring the Caldecott award-winning book it's based on, takes well-known fairy tales and other classic children's stories and mixes them up in all kinds of silly, hilarious ways. Characters include Jack from Jack and the Beanstalk, Chicken Licken, The Really Ugly Duckling, The Stinky Cheese Man and more. For days on end since the show, my kids have been jumping up from behind me, shouting "COW PATTY!"


If you grew up giggling over the book The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales by John Scieszka (like I certainly did), then you absolutely need to see this show with your kids. I have been sharing the same exact book I grew up with, with my kiddos since they were tiny. I bought my copy at my own middle school book fair. If you don't own a copy now, you can pick one up after the show in the theater lobby. I never dreamed I'd see these stories on stage but I'm so glad someone thought to do this. I was in tears with laughter at least four times throughout the show and it was very cool to see my kids glued and engaging with the entire production.


A great bonus to the children's shows at Arden Theatre Company is the post-show Meet and Greet with the cast. Kids get to ask questions and take photos directly after the show. I absolutely love when our kids can interact with professional stage actors as we've had our kids involved in live theater for several years now and live theater has always been a passion of mine that I'm hoping to pass on to my kiddos. Our oldest son, 8, has Aspberger's Syndrome, now referred to as High-Functioning Autism. He's always been very artistic and detail-oriented, so theater has been an amazing and therapeutic resource for him, giving him a place to practice working with a team, to build his social skills, to express himself and be creative. He was very proud to tell the actors at Arden Theatre Company all about his upcoming show.
