We had front row seats and felt truly immersed in the play. The actors were first rate and the plot was hilarious. i would urge you to see 'Taking Steps' before it runs out!

I think your family is a little young for the Ensemble. I would recommend Aladdin the musical and check the Opera House for special shows, especially since it is the holidays.
