I know about the lion king,matilda&charlie&the choc factory.
Are there any other shows?

I would say that is about the level of most West End musicals tbh, just take your pick

My DD enjoyed Wicked at 6.
If over Xmas the Snowman.
Cats is back in the West End atm don't think it's on for long though and not sure about reviews.
Billy Elliott? Stomp?

Escorting my elderly father to see miss Saigon in January and want to do something with my 7yo dd.
thought of a show but for a good seat so she can see (she's tiny) it costs a fortune. What else could we do?
My dad is seeing the matinee performance

I took 7 yr old DS to the Lion King and he loved it. It was v expensive but it was a massive treat for both of us, musical-hating DH took younger DS to the Transport museum, and we did cheaper things the rest of the weekend. If a show is out of budget there are loads of great things to do with children in London. If you are not too bothered which show you see is trying to get last minute tickets an option?

She's really little so worried she won't be able to see.
Absolutely loved the lion king. Would love her to see it

Go for dress circle or balcony not stall tickets, as long as you are high up you can look down at the stage and it doesn't matter so much if there are tall heads in front of you. All the theatres have booster seats for kids, just ask the ushers when you get there.

I've been taking my DD to theatre since she was 3 and in dress circle never had a problem with her being able to see so even a tiny 7 year old will be fine. Enjoy!!

See what royal opera house has on
I know upwind in the willows is showing somewhere.
My DD 7, loved Matilda .... We sat in the cheap high seats, and grabbed some booster seats for DD ...

Lion King - took Dnephew 8 to it- found it to be overlong. We were next to some very restless families.

Matilda- have seen it three times with various child visitors aged between 6 and 12. All loved it. It is an amazing show!

Billy Eliot is good but it has very strong language (including children singing / saying those words) so it depends on your views on that.

Matilda is brilliant,6yo DS loved it! He could see everything, but he could stand if necessary as we were at the top of the middle tier.

This is fab thanks. I'm taking her to see Matilda then. ��
