Kids love musicals! The family-friendly Broadway Playhouse performances introduce young theater fans age 4-11 to Broadway classics through mini musicals, medleys, games and sing-alongs. The 2016-17 season focuses on the lives and music of Jazz Age icons George & Ira Gershwin (Porgy and Bess, An American in Paris); Harold Arlen (The Wizard of Oz) and Alan Menken (Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid). Some children in the audience will be chosen to join the cast on stage!
The Broadway Playhouse cast takes families on a music- and comedy-filled celebration of Hanukkah, with songs, stories, sing-alongs and audience participation games. Prior to the show, there will be a Hanukkah fair, featuring a book fair of seasonal books from Book Culture, plus holiday food, music, Hanukkah storytelling and games, in the Merkin Concert Hall Lobby.
