1. BIG The Musical

Yes, the smash-hit movie made famous by Tom Hanks’ great performance and that iconic piano scene is a musical production set to hit the Dominion Theatre from September. Your teen (and even pre-teens) will likely be able to relate to the story of 12-year-old John who makes a wish to be big. It comes true - and lots of adventures and misadventures ensue! There are lots of laughs in this heartwarming tale and the musical has been brilliantly adapted - it's bound to put a smile on your face!

2. School of Rock - The Musical

Rock and roll! If you’re looking for a musical that’s going to energise your teen like no other, School of Rock at the New London Theatre could very well be it. Based on the hugely popular Jack Black film of the same name. It follows a work-shy pretend supply teacher who starts a band at a snooty prep school. The movie only came out just over a decade ago so it's very likely that most teenagers will already be familiar with the story. And it’s always a little more exciting to head to the theatre to see a tale you already know brought to life on stage. Grab your guitars and come on down!

3. Matilda The Musical 

Sometimes you have to be a little bit naughty! Matilda is a classic pre-teen read that many kids remember as the first book that they were spellbound by. Roald Dahl’s story of a gifted young girl has been turned into an award-winning show at the Cambridge Theatre for all to enjoy! Complete with a catchy original soundtrack, some stellar child actors and colourful sets that will transport you back to your childhood, Matilda is an entertaining spectacle for the entire family. The perfect treat for those with kids of all ages.
