  • Yes - my kids love the Theater! We try to go to as many plays as we can fit into our schedule. Concerts - not yet.

  • I took my niece to her first concert for her 13th birthday. My husband went as well, and we were on the main floor, directly in the middle of the stage, against the rail. Couldn't have been any closer, it was amazing. My niece loved it! I wouldn't have taken her just the two of us, but my husband stood right behind us and kept us safe from people pushing. It was brave - but it was worth it and I would do it again. My nephew can't wait till he turns 13! lol.

  • Yep I've taken both my boys and they enjoyed them. A lot of local theaters offer beginning acting classes if she's interested, my older son did this from the time he was 5 - 10 until he decided he liked sports more. But he loved every minute of it.

  • We have gone to see the Nutcracker Ballet every year since they were 6. We go to one or two musicals or plays a year. We did our first concert this year at age 10. We saw the Jonas Brothers

  • my son loves musicals but he is too sensitive to see one live. I hoping he will grow out of it because musical theater is one of his loves.

  • We took our daughter to a Christmas muscial this past year, and she was 2.5. She did amazing, and it was LOOONG. I took her to a concert (ear plugs) when she was 16 months old, and again on her 2nd birthday. She did great then too. I say, they're never too young to start.
