Best events for kids: Planets and Plays


Clay Arthur and Tia Shearer are part of the children's theater company, Arts on the Horizon. Their latest show is "Out of the Box." (Marcy Hairston)

Today we sent our weekly Going Out Guide With the Kids e-mail newsletter, packed with ideas from the Gurus as well as great reads for parents from the rest of The Post. If you want to get in on the action, sign up to get it here.

To give you a glimpse of the newsletter, we offer you three of our top picks:

Family Day: Up, Up and Away (Saturday) The “Claire Healy and Sean Cordeiro: Are We There Yet?” exhibit at the Corcoran is the inspiration for a day of out-of-this-world themed activities.

Air Borne DC and Zip Zap Circus: Getting AirBorne! (Saturday) Acrobatic adolescents take the stage as part of the Intersections festival at Atlas Performing Arts Center.

“Out of the Box” (Thursday-March 18) A box and some ordinary contents become the perfect toy in this play performed by Arts on the Horizon.
