Wicked for Kids?
I am considering a trip to SoCal this summer with my kids. The Wicked musical is playing at
the Pantages Theater, and after listening to the soundtrack with my kids for months, I was
thinking of taking them. I am wondering if this musical would be appropriate for a 5 and 7
year old? Are there any scary parts? We listen to a lot of soundtracks from musicals, but
they are not necessarily ones that I want them to see (e.g. Grease).
We just made the pilgramage to see WICKED at the PANTAGES with my 10 year old last
month. We absolutely loved it. It is three hours long though, so could be a little
much for a 5 y.o. and 7 y.o. It's not extremely scary though. Personally, I'd wait
until they are a little older, but if you do go, don't worry about any scenes being
Love this musical!! I just went this june and elected not to take my 4and 7 yr old boys
but only because it is long and I didn't think they'd be able to sit through it. Now
that I have seen it I would totally take them.I went with a big group of people many of
whom were kids. there is one point where the wizard comes out and it is very loud! other
that that I personally don't think it was that scary. When I was asking around before I
went, some said the monkeys might be scary but they didn't come across with that strong
a presence. Our seats were in the mezzanine so I don't know if that made a
difference.Have a great time! I can't wait to see it again.
