Louisville.com's family columnist's weekend picks: Orchestra, Globetrotters, spelling bee


Louisville Orchestra's orKIDStra concert Brown Theater Saturday, Jan. 16, 11 a.m. Do you want more cultured, refined children? A zany clown will entertain children with a performance of fun, kid-friendly classical music. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased by calling the Louisville Orchestra at (502) 584-7777. Harlem Globetrotters Freedom Hall Saturday, Jan. 16, 7 p.m. Who can resist the spectacle of the Globetrotters with their dribbling and dunking extravaganza. The kids will be amazed by this show that has thrilled generations of children since the 1920's. An even better bonus...with their their 23,300 “wins”, the Globetrotters are almost guaranteed to win. As a kid, I hated all things having to do with sports, but even I loved those crazy Globetrotters! The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee Eifler Theater, Clifton Center Saturday, January 16th at 7:30 pm This Tony-award winning music comedy one-act will make you laugh out loud.  It's about a school spelling bee, and the fast-pace songs and witty dialogue will keep your elementary-age and up children entertained (I think I'll leave 10 month old Jack at home for this one!). The show is a benefit hosted by Kids Acting Against Cancer (KAAC), a local, non-profit organization of young adults and teenagers.  All proceeds will go to Gilda's Club of Louisville. Tickets are $20 ($15 for students) and you can call (502) 896-8480 for more details. You might also enjoy: Catch the Titanic before she goes down at the Louisville Science Center.
