Family Guide

Considering bringing the kids to a show? Check out our guidelines to help you decide.

We believe that sharing the theatre with youngsters can be a life-changing experience, but some shows are more family friendly than others. Our guidelines below can give you a general idea of what might be appropriate, but you know your child best. If you have questions or want to talk further about any show’s content, just call us at 404.873.4300. Generally, if your child can pay attention to a full-length movie at the cinema, he or she will probably enjoy a theatrical event. Please note: All children must have a ticket, regardless of age.

THE KING AND I

Two worlds collide in the Lincoln Center Theater production of this Rodgers & Hammerstein musical, which tells the story of the relationship that develops between the King of Siam and Anna Leonowens, a British schoolteacher whom the modernist King brings to Siam to teach his many wives and children. Kids will delight in seeing the many children in the cast and hearing the memorable and upbeat songs. Parents should note that the show includes discussions on moral issues like slavery, and while there are moments of sadness, the feeling at the end of the performance is one of hopefulness and understanding.
