Guthrie Theater Announces New Playcare Program for Kids

201310-hd-guthrie-theater-playcarejpg

I think the last time I went to the theater was in 2010. (Slightly embarrassing given I live in New York City.) But every parent knows how it goes; somehow paying a sitter an hourly rate equivalent to the price of a ticket doesn't seem worth it. Well, the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis is on to something. It just announced a new playcare program—I believe the first of its kind—for kids ages 4 to 11. You drop your little ones off at the theater's Level Eight Education Suite, head down to catch a matinee, then pick them up after the show, all for $10 an hour. Unfortunately, I'm not headed to Minneapolis anytime soon, but I'm hoping the Guthrie's idea catches on. It's genius.
