We may all be looking forward to the hot weather, but we are also dreading the task of finding entertainment for our kids (do they really need two whole months off?)
StageCoach is a musical theatre company founded in England that runs week-long summer camps for kids in BC, Ontario, and soon Quebec. Each camp is based around a theme: Musicals Unlimited features songs from Glee and High School Musical, while Waifs and Strays includes Les Miserables, Annie, and Oliver. Depending on your kids’ ages, the camps run a half or full day, and feature an end-of-week show.
Book before June for the early bird discount, and ensure that the Little Shop of Horrors, Stomp, and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will be in their house, not yours. —Alexandra Suhner Isenberg

You’ve seen Bee Movie so many time you can recite it by heart (“He better not marry a W.A.S.P.!”).
Time to subject your kids to the cinematic obsessions of your own youth.
Fresh Air Cinema inflates a massive screen in parks across Western Canada and is coming to Vancouver this weekend.
Lay out your lawn chairs in Yaletown’s David Lamb Park on Sunday night at dusk for the free screening of E.T. (don’t forget the Reese’s Pieces!).
“E.T. phone home!” You said it not us.
