Quite a few familiar storybook characters are appearing on stage across Long Island this August, including Pinkalicious, Angelina Ballerina, and Blues Clues. Read on for details on these musicals and more kids' shows appearing in theaters this month.

Blues Clues musical

There are certain book characters that are forever linked to childhood memories, and many remain beloved through several generations. When these characters make it to the stage, children, parents, and even grandparents can enjoy seeing them together. There happen to be quite a few familiar storybooks headed for Long Island stages this month.

Long Island is close enough to Camelot to entice King Arthur's Krazy Kwest to come to Theatre Three. Expect a whole new twist to this Middle Ages musical. August 5 at 11am. $10. Theatre Three, 412 Main Street, Port Jefferson; 631-928-9100.

Both productions $12-$22. The Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts, 71 East Main Street, Patchogue; 631-218-0315.
