TAKE THE KIDS:




Fairy-Tale Feet


To enjoy the world of fairy tales and dance, catch up with the ballet version of "Cinderella," (Zolushka). Sergei Prokofiev's music brings to dazzling life the well-known story of a poor girl whose romance with Prince Charming turns on the help of her fairy godmother's bag of tricks and on having the right-sized feet. The show starts at 2 p.m. Sunday inside the Kremlin walls at the Kremlin Palace. Despite the magnificent location, tickets are only 30 to 100 rubles ($1.05 to $3.50) from the Kremlin box office at Metro Alexandrovsky Sad. Tel. 917-2336. Metro Alexandrovsky Sad.


Jungle Madness


For a day of fun take the little ones to the depths of the jungle, or rather, Dzhungli, an entertainment center where they can enjoy a three-level labyrinth, a dry swimming pool filled with plastic balls and a toy punching bag. On Saturdays and Sundays a clown is on hand and cartoons are shown. The center is open 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday at 17A Ulitsa Chertanovskaya. Admission is 40 rubles ($1.40) weekdays and 80 rubles on weekends. Tel. 315-1271. Metro Yuzhnaya.


Animals, Animals


Or you can take the kids to visit an unusual theater where the stars on the stage aren't the usual human variety, but animals. At the Yury Kuklachyov Cat Theater, dogs and cats star in plays and perform tricks. This week's show, "Moi Lyubimiye Koshki" (My Favorite Cats), begins at 6 p.m. Saturday. The theater is located at 25 Kutuzovsky Prospekt. Tickets cost 15 to 300 rubles (55 cents to $10.60), free for children under age 6. Tel. 249-2907. Metro Kievskaya, Kutuzovskaya.
