Taking the kids to live theater is a wonderful experience. I speak very personally of this joy. I still remember the expression on my son's face when he saw, as a young child, his first Musical Theater show. It was truly a new world opening up to him, one that has become his passion. Who would have known? So it is with great enthusiasm that I recommend taking your children to the theater...but here are a a few things all parents, grandparents and guardians need to consider when taking a young child to see live theater.
Let me preface this by saying that I do not intend to insult anyone by including this section but, having attended theater many times over the last twenty years, I believe that many parents to do not know the rules of theater etiquette or if they do, many fail to understand the importance of teaching them to a very young child. So this little section is a

. Kids enjoy the games and activities while learning at the same time.
Most young children love the theater and if you are taking the kids to live theater, early in their life they will be see and experience one of life's greatest cultural pleasures.
You, as a parent, will reap great rewards by exposing your child to this cultural element. I won't get into the academic and intellectual advantages here, but take my work on this, they are numerous.
So, please, give your child the gift of live theater and help them to enjoy it by teaching them theater etiquette from the very beginning. Oh! and don't forget to watch their faces as they see some of their favorite characters come to life. You will cherish these memories as they get older.
