There aren’t many opportunities to see grown men dress up in the costumes of their children’s favorite character.
But the fathers who are a part of Somerville-Hawes Dads’ Night set the bar pretty high when it comes to doing things for their kids.
The organization, now in its 71st year, has become a brotherhood of sorts, spanning multiple generations.
The event now has more dads participating than ever before.
This year Dads’ Night returns with two performances at the Benjamin Franklin Middle School auditorium at 7 p.m. on Friday, March 6 and 3 p.m. Saturday, March 7. The free show is general admission seating.
Perhaps it is the silliness of it all that these dads embrace that becomes the element that bonds them together.
The show is written, produced, and stars Ridgewood fathers with kids in the elementary schools.

The controlled chaos that rumbled inside Somerville School last Thursday was rather soothing, as if everyone was comfortable within the confines where 200 or so men clamored around chomping on sandwiches and downing soft drinks from plastic cups. It was, after all, a Dads’ Night rehearsal – what were the chances that an event arranged solely by men would start with anything but a little ruckus?
The tradition-filled, 68-year history of Dads’ Night, the all-male variety-show fundraiser benefitting students at Hawes and Somerville schools, permits those brief moments of madness. But with this year’s team, everyone has been on the same page since day one; last week’s commotion was more a call to get the motor running, a plea to get the show on the road.
