Shows in LA & OC: The Best Shows for Kids around Los Angeles

To go or not to go - that is the question, and sometimes it's a question that's hard to answer. We are blessed with theater opportunities of every imaginable kind in this city of out-of-work actors, with everything from top-notch children's theater and family productions to experimental troops in the woods. Chances are Mom and Dad don't want to go see all of these plays first to screen them, so let us help bring the cream to the top. Check our reviews to see if we've been there ahead of you. We'll not only tell you how we liked and how our kids liked it; we'll also give you a heads up about things like length, loudness, intermissions, age-appropriateness, and the all-important, "What was the scariest part?" 

Looking for large scale touring productions or films? We review those, too!
