Boy and bear. Olympia Family Theater presents a unique adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s Mowgli stories (you know: little boy abandoned in the jungle makes friends with a bear, gets stalked by a tiger) this month. Jungalbook is set in a children’s playground with a jungle gym for a set, and the animals who surround Mowgli are dressed as playground characters. Ages 8 and older. $8–$15. March 25–April 11: Fridays, 7 p.m.; Saturdays and Sundays, 3 p.m. Thursday, April 1 is “Thrifty Thursday”: Tickets are only $5 each and sold at the door only, starting at 6:15 p.m. Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts, Olympia.
All wet. The Moisture Festival has a charm that’s entirely old Fremont — it’s unironic fun that’s just rough enough around the edges to be interesting. Best of all (in my admittedly biased opinion), it’s kid friendly. Head to Hale’s Palladium (located behind Hale’s Brewery in “Frelard”) and, new this year, the Georgetown Ballroom for comedy/variety acts that include aerialists, vaudeville performers, acrobats, fiddlers, magicians, Godfrey Daniels and his big red balloon, jugglers and local musical gem Baby Gramps. Do not miss it! $10–$20. Runs March 11–April 4.
