The Superbowl may be behind us, but winter is still here – along with more snow. However, there are some kids who are ready to brave the cold and head on down to the Ministry of Winter to file a formal complaint against the coldest season of the year.

This week is the last week to catch The Gift of Winter at the Tada! Youth Theater. The play is based on the book by John Leach and Jean Rankin. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation later adapted the book into a cartoon, which was voiced by SNL alumni Gilda Radner and Dan Aykroyd. While the cartoon never became one of the big “Christmas” specials, since it has nothing to do with holiday, it is still a fun story about the winter season (more specifically about snow).

Up-tempo songs, such as "Down with Winter” and “The Answer is Snow," have an Orphan Annie feel to them that your kids will love. It’s a well-produced, ensemble show that costs only $25 for adults and $15 for kids – much less than your average Broadway theater production.

More importantly, this is a great way to introduce your kids to a new afterschool activity. The Tada! Youth Theater offers camps all year long. Its next school-break camp starts on February 17th, the first day of winter recess. The camp is broken down into two age groups: 6-8 and 9-14. Kids create a brand new musical in just five days. This one will be called Seasons of Love.

The Gift of Winter ends on February 9. Be sure to get tickets now since they are selling fast.
