This show is worth seeing. The discount tickets from Goldstar were awesome. However, I would have paid full price for this show. If you haven't seen it, take yourself, take your kids, take everyone! The entire cast is strong vocally,...continued

This was our second occasion to attend this play. We also saw it at the Ahmanson. It is a wonderful musical, with lots of the familiar of the movie, yet with its own flair.
I loved the multi-purpose set. It was a creative way to be in several...continued

This was such a cute show! A definite must see show! I'm so glad that we decided to go at the last minute. On a whim, my friend and I decided to go, so we got our tickets on that day. Our seats were pretty decent for buying them on the same day....continued

Awesome performance! The show was non-stop singing and dancing. The set was incredible and I recommend this show for any age--the actors and actresses were unbelievably talented and engaging. This show will leave you smiling for a long time:)

Excellent singing and dancing to all the favorite tunes. Mary and Bert were fantastic. Nanny Anderson was the best! While I liked the performance from a theatrical perspective, I did not like the story line change at all. I think it sends the...continued

Great show although if you're expecting the movie, it's nothing like it. Some very dark scenes, including when Mary has the toys that have been abused by the children come to life....kids are going to have nightmares! Tap scene is wonderful,...continued

High energy show. It was well worth it. My 2 kids enjoyed it, although the storyline is somewhat different than the movie (which was peculiar). My kids were singing along with the famous songs. It's really been altered to target the adults. ...continued

I attended with 5 others - all 80+ years of age. We were all delighted and felt it was one of the best performances we've seen in some time.
