Way Back When

Luckily, the production of When I Was a Child at the Dallas Children's Theater, 5938 Skillman St., isn't focused on our younger years. Good thing--stagings of homework done on time and standing out in right field would bore you to tears, though occasional whining fits at Chili's might've been entertaining ("but you promissssed me cheeeeese sticks!"). Ted Perry and Hans Breder's stories of growing up during WWII on separate sides of the conflict are certainly more compelling--and more mature fare than you'd expect at a children's theater. As such, the production is recommended for ages 12 and up. Showtimes are 7:30 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Tickets are $14 to $16.
