Have you ever been dying to see an upcoming theater production but can’t find a babysitter in time? Synetic Theater in Arlington is offering a new service so that this problem won’t even cross your mind.

For $5 per child, your children will be entertained during the show with theater games led by the certified instructors who teach the the theater’s camps and classes. The child care service will be featured on May 18 for the show  “Three Men in a Boat (To say nothing of the Dog).”

“This is the first time we are offering this option for our audience. We have heard from patrons in the past that lack of childcare is often something that hinders them from seeing our productions.,” Alysa Turner, Synetic’s marketing manager said. “We hope that by offering this option, more people can experience our shows.”

If the service is popular, it could become a regular feature at Synetic. When asked why Synetic thought to offer the service, Turner said, “We offer kids classes and camps year round, so it just made sense to use our unique resources this way, especially now that our studio space is located just down the hall from our theater.”
