In the mood for some theater, dance and circus this weekend? You're in luck. Local stages are bursting with kid-focused — and, in some cases,  kid-filled — performances sure to make you tap your toes, sing in your seat and dream big!

A rainy day is transformed into an amazing adventure in Dr. Seuss's The Cat in the Hat, which comes to St. Michael's Playhouse on Friday through Sunday, with 10 a.m. and noon performances, perfect for the smallest of theatergoers. 

The young performers of Very Merry Theatre present Rogers and Hammerstein's classic musical The King & I at Staige Hill Farm in Charlotte on Friday night. 

On Saturday afternoon and evening, some of the country's best tap dancers, ranging from 9 to 22 years old, bring the noise to the stage of the Black Box Theater in Burlington for a rousing celebration of dance.

The Jets and the Sharks clash on the streets of New York when the Vermont Children's Theater presents West Side Story on Thursday through Saturday in Lyndonville.

And on Sunday, aerial artists come to the Shelburne Museum for Circuspalooza, where kids can also participate in carnival games and clowning workshops and nosh on cotton candy and popcorn.

Enjoy the weekend!
