Forget the expensive theater tickets. At the National Theatre in downtown Washington, families can enjoy free live performances at 9:30 and 11 a.m. on most Saturdays this fall.

The performances, aimed at children ages 4 and older, range from live music to live animal displays, such as “Super Snakes SSSsssss!” a performance that takes place Saturday and features snake handler Michael Shwedick and a collection of wrigglers, including a green anaconda, an albino rock python and a cobra.

Upcoming performances include a puppet performance of “Aesop’s Fables” on Oct. 24 and a theater performance of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” on Nov. 14.

While free, the performances require tickets, which are given out on a first-come, first-served basis a half-hour before the performance starts.

For more information, call the theater at 202/783-3372 or visit www.nationaltheatre.org.
