Upcoming Family Shows
Family musicals and plays on and off Broadway are a great way to introduce children to the magic of the dramatic arts. With so many shows geared toward young families, both children and parent members of the audience will enjoy the music, comedy, and lessons learned by the characters of the show. Aladdin learns to be himself and be true to his word as he and the Genie forge a legendary friendship. In the Lion King, Simba must overcome Scar and the hyenas to take his rightful place on Pride Rock. School of Rock and Matilda—the Musical also focus on being true to oneself. All of these shows—and more—are a fun way for families to enjoy an afternoon or evening at the theater.
Family musicals and theater has been around since the late nineteenth century, with shows like the H.M.S. Pinafore taking the stage in 1878, and forever changing the face of musical theater entertainment. What had once been reserved for a more adult audience was now opening up to include productions not only suitable, but written, for family audiences. Today, family musicals and plays represent some of the top shows on and off Broadway.
