If you’re one of those that have been lacking more cowbell and are a bit short on Hollywood Bowl time since the kids joined the family, it’s time to rejoice! Add some juice boxes to the picnic basket along with that bottle of wine, cheese, and make the crackers Goldfish. This summer the Bowl is introducing the perfect way to get kids to love classical music – by adding their favorite cartoon characters!

It’s hosted by Jack Black, so come head over and celebrate the studio’s 20th anniversary with an evening of visually stunning film highlights on the Bowl’s big screen, with their memorable scores performed live.
