Disney's Aladdin (Segerstrom Center for the Arts)
Alexandra F.: The beloved Disney classic is brought to life on stage, with all of the glitz and spectacle you could hope for in a Broadway musical! This is one of the few stage adaptations of Disney movies that I have really enjoyed, as the live performance really adds a sense of magic to the story. It helps that Alan Menken wrote the music for the show, too!

Experience the majesty of this popular and kid-friendly Broadway show based on the beloved Disney movie.
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical (Segerstrom Center for the Arts)

SCR’s popular Theatre for Young Audiences and Families series presents a hip-hop musical inspired by the Lewis Carroll classic, where an ingenious, teenage Alice falls into the virtual world of a video game she creates.
