When we were given 2 tickets to the Lion King Opening night the battle began. As a family of 4 we had to decide who was going to go. The discussion went on for several weeks until an agreement between a 4 year old boy and a 7 year old girl was met. The 4 year old was granted the right to the ticket as long as the 7 year old would get first pick at any Ballet tickets that came our way. Now it was between the adults to decide and luckily I was chosen to be my 4 year old’s date. The cutest date I have ever had.
The show was “Amazing” and the puppetry and costumes were fantastic! One of my favorite parts was when the cast stand among the audience with flying kite birds waving over our heads. Whilst I am pretty sure my child was one of the youngest I would not hesitate taking him again. Apart from a few whispered questions during the show he was quiet and totally enthralled. Overall it was amazing and suitable for all young theater goers.
