Do you like acrobatics? Do you like dogs? What about acrobatic dogs?! Chris Perondi’s Stunt Dog Experience is a new show at Kidsfest this year that is sure to wow. This show includes twelve uniquely gifted animals that will leave the whole family amazed. They have even stunned Oprah Winfrey! These amazing canines will be performing on Showstreet as well.
Dolly Parton loves books. She began a charity to make sure every child in the Tennessee Mountains has good books to read in their house. It goes without saying that she believes in the power of reading. So you shouldn’t be surprised to know that during kidsfest, she took the opportunity to combine her two loves, books and music. Dolly’s Imagination Playhouse is presented by the Penguin Players. During this show they will bring three children’s classics to life. Each story is presented as a 20-minute musical complete with songs written by Ms. Dolly herself! This year’s line-up includes The Little Engine that Could, Ladybug Girl and the Bug Squad, and Otis. This show will run from June 15, 2012, through August 5, 2012. You will find Dolly’s Imagination Playhouse in the Village in Dollywood.
