Kids Broadway Shows Out Now

Hey, Hollywooders! 

Now that Broadway is back, the ability to enjoy and experience live theatre is very attainable. There is nothing quite like watching actors perform on stage with a room full of people who are the most excited to be there. Think about the midnight premiere of a movie where all the people who go really want to be there. It’s like that, but on a much bigger scale.

As someone who was introduced to musical theatre at a young age, it became a big part of my identity in a positive way. Not only did it get me interested in watching theatre, but it also inspired me to read books shows were based on, engage with a community of people who shared interests with me, and inspired me to become a part of the technical crew for the musicals in my middle school.

Showing at the Gershwin Theatre, this nearly three-hour musical is a much-loved classic focused on looking at the events of The Wizard of Oz, but it’s from the perspective of the Wicked Witch of the West before Dorothy arrives.
