Free Kids Fun in Downtown Los Angeles this Summer

Wow! Kick Off Summer with Free Family Shows Outdoors!

Free and Open to the Public - 4 Shows YOU Can Enjoy

A series of free, family shows has been announced for the Watercourt stage at Grand Performances in downtown Los Angeles this summer. 


The stage is built into a giant water fountain on California Plaza which is next to the MOCA and Broad Museums, and Pershing Square. 
There is seating on a first-come, first-served basis or audiences can bring blankets and low-back chairs.

Free interactive workshops begin 30 minutes before each show time and are themed to the performance. Shows include:

Cinderella by Sock Puppet Sitcom Theater (June 12 @3:00pm & 4:30pm) – Dress in your favorite fairytale garb and join the magically and musically re-imagined telling of Cinderella in the style of a television situation comedy...with sock puppets.


Flutes Across the World (June 19 @ 3:00pm) – Award-winning film and theater composer and children’s performer John Zeretzke leads a flute-making workshop and an all-out, interactive jam session for kids to celebrate music of the world’s indigenous cultures.

José-Luis Orozco ¡Come Bien! Eat Right! (June 26 @ 3:00pm) – The beloved children’s entertainer leads an interactive musical feast of rhythm, rhyme, and culture blended with a bilingual message to eat right and live life to the fullest.


Lucky Diaz and the Family Jam Band (July 3 @ 3:00pm) – Known as the face of kindie music, these Latin Grammy and Emmy winners bring smart, bilingual, crafty lyrics with irresistibly fresh pop beats.

The free and open to the public performances are presented at California Plaza, 350 S. Grand Avenue.
