Billy Elliot the Musical at Tony-winning Signature Theatre in Arlington, VA October 30, 2018 - January 6, 2019 Directed and Choreographed by Signature Theatre Associate Artistic Director Matthew Gardiner   All 11-year-old Billy wants to do is dance. While the 1984 miners’ strike squeezes his family and splits his town, Billy’s passion for ballet first divides, then ultimately unites, the community—and changes his life in extraordinary ways. Based on the powerful and acclaimed film, Billy Elliot swept the Tony, Drama Desk, and Olivier awards for Best Musical, by combining a dynamic score by the legendary Elton John with sensational dance to create a heartwarming, inspirational and triumphant experience for the entire family.  “The Washington area has only seen Billy Elliot the Musical when the national tour came through several years ago,” said Signature Theatre Artistic Director Eric Schaeffer. “I felt it was time to bring this musical to Washington in a new and intimate production. With the cast and creative team on this show, it promises to be an invigorating experience for our audiences this holiday season.” For a more immersive experience at the Theatre, plan to join them for one of their Specialty Nights: Discussion Night on Wednesday, Dec. 5th & Tuesday, Dec. 11th: Go behind the scenes with an exclusive post-show discussion. Pride Night on Friday, Dec. 14th: A special event for members of the LGBTQ community, family and friends with a lively post-show reception. Open captioned performance for hearing impaired patrons is available on Sunday, Dec. 16th at 2 p.m. Signature is widely recognized as the premiere venue in Washington to see musical theater and is home to the largest musical theater development program in the U.S. Recently called “the hottest company in (and around) D.C. by The Washington Post, Signature is renowned for its interpretations of Stephen Sondheim’s work, inventive adaptations of overlooked or forgotten musicals, and investment in fresh new projects.

If you thought you could only practice snow skiing and snowboarding in the winter - think again! With Inside Ski Training Center, the premier indoor ski facility in the Mid-Atlantic, you can improve your ski technique ALL YEAR LONG! Join Inside Ski in Leesburg, VA on weekdays this Fall for their 1-Hour Group Ski or Snowboard lessons - they'll have you ready for the slopes without the hassle of lines, lifts and cold weather! No equipment necessary - Inside Ski provides all the gear you need for every age and level participant out there. Just show up, get fitted properly for boots by their professional staff, clip on your gear and you're ready to go! Or, if you have your own helmet (bike, skateboard or snow), and boots, please bring them! All instructors are PSIA / AASI ski and snowboard certified and work in-season at either Liberty or Whitetail ski resorts.   At Inside Ski, enjoy fast-paced, individualized learning with immediate feedback. Here's how it works: Once you're geared up, you'll step onto an upward revolving surface that simulates a slope sliding underneath you. Instructors control the pitch and speed of this supersized treadmill, tailoring it to the ability of the skiers or boarders on the slope. Novice skiers have the added benefit of a padded support bar at the bottom of the slope to provide stability while advanced skiers can use the large mirror at the bottom of the slope to see their skills improve first-hand. If you've NEVER skied or snowboarded before, no worries! Your instructor will start you on the static (non-moving) deck first and teach you all the basics before transitioning you over to the revolving slope. Don't think of this as a new way to ski - think of it as a way to enhance your skiing experience. With Inside Ski Training, you'll save time and money. Each 1-hour lesson offers the same training as a half day on the snow. By training in the off-season, you'll be ready to hit the slopes with confidence and ease when the first snow falls this winter.

Please Touch Museum features TWO FLOORS of stimulating, interactive exhibits and fun learning opportunities all designed to promote creativity, imagination, deductive reasoning and critical thinking. Let your children lead the way as you follow their curiosity through these awesome exhibits! Hello from Japan! Learn about Japanese culture today through two playful and highly immersive trilingual exhibition environments – a kawaii streetscape and a peaceful Shinto shrine park area. Design a personalized mascot figure, dress-up and sing to a favorite karaoke song and crawl through the forest in the Shinto shrine area. Practice problem-solving skills and manipulation of 3-dimensional elements while building bridges and loading a Japanese city truck with construction materials. Exercise creative and digital literacy skills while learning how to write the names of fruits and vegetables in Japanese, read Japanese manga books and traditional kami stories, and compose wishes at the Wishing Tree. Practice early math skills while taking meal orders and playing cashier at the bento restaurant. (Exhibit open through September 3, 2018) Future architects, city planners and shopkeepers will love City Capers, an exhibit of Philadelphia’s cityscape featuring a construction zone, ShopRite Supermarket and Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia medical center. Repair a car and fill its gas tank, jump into the driver’s seat of a SEPTA bus or become a highway toll collector at Roadside Attractions. Then stretch your legs in City Park, complete with a food vendor’s cart. Race sailboats, play with bubbles and discover animals in the high grass as part of River Adventures, an exhibit all about science, nature and weather. It's always tea time in Wonderland, where children can descend down the rabbit hole and weave through a hallway of doors and mirrors, riddles and optical illusions. It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s the Statue of Liberty’s arm and torch, made out of toys and other “found objects.” Baseball bats. Skis. Even a Rocky Balboa bobblehead doll! At the Please Touch Garden, healthy eating, recycling and sustainability are on the menu, taught in part by playing with worms, making seed balls and donning costumes for dramatic play. Junior engineers can assemble, schedule and operate their own trains at Centennial Exploration, as well as gaze in awe at the 20-by-30-foot model of Philadelphia's 1876 Centennial Exhibition grounds and its 200 structures. Build an imaginary world out of giant foam blocks at Imagination Playground. Young astronauts will love Space Station where they can pretend they are a space shuttle pilot or launch their own rocket!

I think the breakup of the rooms helps with that." - kbially, TripAdvisor Review, Jan. 8, 2017 "The Please Touch Museum never disappoints! It was one of my favorite places as a kid and is now my favorite place to visit with children! From classics like the real SEPTA bus and working store to newer exhibits like Alice's Wonderland and the life-sized floor piano, a trip to the Please Touch Museum is always a good idea." - Melissa L., TripAdvisor Review, Sept. 12, 2016

Ever wonder what really happened to the "unsinkable" R.M.S. Titanic or better yet how they actually found the shipwreck 73 years later and over 12,500 feet under the ocean? Well this fall, prepare your little explorers for an epic adventure beneath the sea, deep into one of history's greatest maritime tragedies, "Titanic: The Untold Story" at National Geographic Museum.     You know the story. In the early hours of April 15, 1912, the unimaginable occurred. The R.M.S. Titanic, the largest, grandest ship of its time, struck an iceberg on its maiden voyage and sank beneath the waves of the North Atlantic Ocean, taking with it more than 1,500 souls. The ship’s final resting place lay undiscovered for 73 years. And then, in 1985, Dr. Robert Ballard stunned the world when he announced that he had found the Titanic. But how? The true tale of how legendary oceanographer and National Geographic Explorer-at-Large Robert Ballard located the long-lost ship remained a classified secret until 2008. Finally, he was able to reveal that he was actually on a top secret mission for the U.S. Navy to conduct surveillance on two lost nuclear subs. Discover the surprising link between a top secret Cold War mission and the 1985 discovery of the sunken Titanic in this fascinating exhibition. Developed in collaboration with the National Archives and the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, “Titanic” reveals the remarkable—and long-classified—story behind the historic discovery. This extensive exhibition also transports visitors to the height of transatlantic steamship travel, displaying items from the luxurious ocean liner and sharing the stories—many for the first time—of some aboard the ship on its tragic maiden voyage. See incredible images and artifacts, like the coat worn by Titanic survivor Marion Wright Woolcott, and never-before-exhibited ship and expedition memorabilia, including the 8,000-pound crew module from the submersible Ballard and team used to survey the shipwreck.
