If you're looking to introduce your children to the magic of live performance, Manchester is a great place to do it. Manchester's venues host many kid's plays and family-friendly musicals throughout the year including tours of major West End shows aimed at families, and the sparkling annual pantomime.
To cater to kids of all ages, childrens' theatre is a varied category. Stage adaptations of beloved kids' books and television programs are popular options for pre-schoolers and early primary school-aged children. For pre-teens or even a family of mixed ages, tours of West End musicals can provide spectacular nights out with broad appeal; and panto is the perfect low-pressure environment with audience participation to get young theatregoers excited about live entertainment.
