Theater shows for diverse age group

I have never been to London with children before and would like to take them to the theater,

Any recommendations for shows that older adults, middle aged adults and children (11 & 12) would enjoy?

are you familiar with the Wizard of Oz?

Have you seen "Wicked"? If not, I would recommend.

School of Rock might fit the bill.

If you want recommendations of where in the theatre to sit (not that there are *bad* seats at the New London), check out the excellent Theatre Monkey website:

Is Matilda still playing? I'd agree with Wicked too.

I’ll second the recommendation for Wicked. Perhaps have the younger members stream the soundtrack or watch Defying Gravity on YouTube.

Shakespeare at the Globe. Lots to look at around the theatre as well as what is going on on stage

Aladdin seems to suit all ages judging by the age groups of the audience when we were there!

If you like a good laugh, see if The Play That Goes Wrong is still on.

Wicked or the Lion King. I think that War Horse is closed now.

We took our kids to Wicked at the Apollo Victoria and they loved it! Listened to the soundtrack every day for months afterwards.
