Written by Chelsea Triola  |  18. April 2015

A great way to spend some bonding time with the kids is to attend some entertaining children’s plays with them! Many theaters all across the Island offer children’s theater which features a ton of great plays and musicals that parents can enjoy with their little ones. 
 
A lot of the children’s theater, plays and musicals are performances based off of famous movies, novels and musicals, which is another reason why they’re so popular. It’s a wonderful way to re-live old classic productions while teaching your children all about them at the same time!
