DD & I have decided to watch musicals together. The library does a 2 for 1 on a Friday; but the search at the library is a little lacking

So I need a nice list of musicals for us......& I'm feeling a little blank

We are going to have a Katymac choice & a DD choice each week; so we need old & new

Where do we start (she has seen quite a few of the big ones, so I was thinking of older ones she might not have heard of.....preferably with lots of dancing wink)
