Getting to the theatre is a fantastic family day out; the songs, the lights, the action! Your kids always leave happy and hungry for more! Sometimes it’s challenging to know which theatre shows for children to take them to see. You’ll want something that will engage them and that’s not to complex. 2019 has been a fab year as far as kids’ theatre shows are concerned. For some of the best theatre shows right now, give a few of these a try!

The Lion The Witch And The Wardrobe
There’s nothing better than when a classic kids’ book is turned into a truly awesome show! Journey through the wardrobe to the magical lands of Narnia; meet Aslan and the White Witch upon the way. Sit upon the edge of your seats and watch the children try to save the day in this unforgettable and dazzling adventure. This enchanting show will have both you and your kids hooked. You could even read some of the books to your children before you go to get them all excited!
Did you love the Wizard of Oz? Well, now’s your chance to hear the real story behind the Wicked Witch Of the West! Wicked weaves the tale of Elphaba (the wicked witch) and Glinda (the good witch) from the time that they first met at university. A delightful story where things are not quite what they seem. With some truly stunning performances, this show is certainly one for your bucket list.
Harry Potter & The Cursed Child
This really is what all Harry Potter fans have been waiting for! Here you’ll find Harry Potter as a husband and father of three, working at the Ministry of Magic. Watch the past the present unfold in a drama where father and son earn about the price of legacy and magic. The show is based on a new story by J.K Rowling, John Tiffany, and Jack Thorne. It’s critically acclaimed and even won nine different awards! With that in mind, it might be time to get your hands on some of those west end tickets!
The Lion King
If you’ve not already seen this classic- you will want to change that! Based on the original story of the Lion King, you’ll find all your favourite songs sung with some of the most stunning vocals that you’ve ever heard. The visuals in the show are spectacular (there’s not a chance that your kids won’t have their eyes fixed to the stage the whole time)! This beautiful musical follows Simba on his quest to learn what it truly means to become a king. With the evil lion Scar aiming to defeat him at every turn; this show truly is action-packed.
Theatre shows really are addictive, once you go to one you’ll be singing and dancing your way to the next. When you’re planning your next family day out, why not give something new a try and opt for a theatre adventure. Seeing a really great show is an unforgettable memory that your children will really treasure.
