This is KIDS' SPACE, a guide to things for children to do and see.

We always like to hear from the kids themselves - what's going on in their school or neighborhood, and what they think. We also welcome original writing, poetry, drawings, and photos.

Kids' Review

By Mathew J. Glenn

PS 206

It looks like the ol' Parkside Players are putting on another amazing show. This time it's "A Little Shop of Horrors." It's about a man-eating plant that is constantly hungry. It may sound familiar - you may have read about this kind of vegetation from R.L. Stine's "Goosebumps." The play's fun and a little scary! Call 718-454-6190. (Also, see the adult's review on Page E8).
