Coolidge Kids’ Show Schedule in Brookline

Kids Concerts and Live Performances in Brookline

CapabilityMom sent me the Fall Schedule for the Coolidge Kid shows at 290 Harvard Street in Brookline. The shows look great and are well priced thanks to underwriting from Magic Beans and Eastern Bank. When the weather turns nasty, this is a great option to get the kids out of the house while introducing them to the fun of live performances!
