I'm going to London in October with hubby and 2 daughters and want to take them to see a show. Now the 8yr old will sit and watch (and enjoy) anything, but the 4yr old is fidgety, can't watch an entire film (except Mamma Mia) and has been to the cinema a few times but has never sat still throughout the whole film. However, we did take her to see our Snow White pantomime at Christmas and she sat mesmerised through it.
The 4 shows we've narrowed it down to are Mamma Mia (because as said above, this is the only film she will sit and watch all the way through), The Lion King, Oliver and Hairspray, both girls like all these last 3 films but the 4yr old doesn't always last the whole film.
I basically just wanted recommendations if anyone has been to see these and if they think a fidgety 4yr old would enjoy it. Any help would be appreciated as we don't want to spend a fortune on show tickets for it to be stressful.
