While children may know the name Disney more than the names Rogers and Hammerstein, classic Broadway fans may combine the famous composer and lyricist of works such as South Pacific and Oklahoma with a children’s show by getting tickets to Cinderella on Broadway. In fact, Rogers and Hammerstein wrote several shows that fit into the children’s show genre including the Sound of Music and the King And I.

For older kids, the visual stunts, excitement and rock music style of Spider-Man may stand as the perfect fit for a show to introduce kids to the Broadway show experience. Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark is a rock musical with music and lyrics by U2’s Bono and The Edge and a book by Julie Taymor, Glen Berger, and Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
