The kids are officially back at school, but that doesn’t mean the fun of summer vacation has to end. Fall is the perfect time to enjoy an outing with your family, and we’ve got the perfect suggestions in mind!
Disney on Ice
The perennial family favorite ice show is back with all of the beloved characters and enchanting magic that only Disney can produce. Now on a massive national tour through January 2018, Disney on Ice will captivate children and parents with a variety of productions, including Dare to Dream, Follow Your Heart, Reach for the Stars, Dream Big, and a special (and entirely appropriate) Frozen-themed show.
Join Chase, Marshall, Rubble, Zuma, Rocky, Skye, and Everest–better known as the courageous dogs from Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol–and their friends in this energetic live show designed for children ages 1-6. Come along on a fun and educational journey with the pups, complete with plenty of singing, dancing, and laughing that the little ones will love! Paw Patrol will travel to cities across the country now through the spring of 2018.
The Lion King
This classic Disney tale is even more magical on stage than it is on screen. Parents and kids of all ages will marvel at the opening “Circle of Life” sequence, be blown away by the elaborate costumes and makeup, and sing along to every memorable Elton John/Tim Rice-composed tune. All of these elements have made The Lion King Broadway’s highest-grossing production over the course of its now 20-year run. Catch it at the Minskoff Theatre on Broadway or at various theaters across the country on tour.
The Wizard of Oz
The timeless story of Dorothy and the friends she meets in the magical land of Oz will delight all members of the family in this charming and whimsical stage production. From the beloved songs like “Over the Rainbow” and “We’re Off to See the Wizard” to the heartwarming lesson that there’s truly no place like home, The Wizard of Oz makes for the perfect family outing. It is playing in various regional theaters through next spring, so don’t miss out!
Peppa Pig Live!
One of today’s most popular children’s programs, Peppa Pig, comes to life on stage for the little ones to enjoy.

The stage show is currently traveling across the U.S. now through December.
