Best Shows for NYC Kids and Families for Spring 2019

The spring is always a great time for family theater, but the next few months look particularly exciting. There are page-to-stage adaptations of young-adult favorites (The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical, Anne of Green Gables); wordless spectacles to captivate all ages (Snap, Cirque du Soleil's new extravaganza); and a few thought-provoking choices for young teens (The Adventures of Alvin Sputnik: Deep Sea Explorer, Silent Voices: Lovestate).

While on Broadway it's all Beetlejuice and Be More Chill, there's no need to shell out big bucks to give your kids a memorable live entertainment experience in NYC. Most of the 22 shows we're spotlighting are just $25—or less—per ticket.

Easter Bunny Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch, and Dinner for Philly Families

For many Philly families, part of celebrating the season of spring includes a visit to see the Easter Bunny. Thankfully, there are many opportunities to not only see the Easter Bunny hopping through the Delaware Valley but enjoy a meal as well. Kids have a chance to eat brunch, lunch, or dinner with the bunny at a variety of locations including museums, zoos, boats, and restaurants. Almost all events include photo-ops and some even offer egg hunts!

Take a look at some of our favorite events happening this year. Be sure to book your reservation in advance as many of these opportunities sell out.

40+ Easter Egg Hunts and Bunny Events for Kids in LA and Orange County

Some of us have lovely gardens and the inclination to creatively hide eggs in them early on a Sunday morning. Others have an inclination to sleep late and find eggs hidden in someone else's garden. We find no shame in that and are more than happy to help guide you to lots of places where Peter Cottontail has evidently just been moments before. Most of the egg hunts below take place Easter weekend; keep an eye on our Event Calendar for last-minute additions, and check out these other places to find the Easter Bunny for more photo ops!
