First of all ,do a search on this forum...there have been lots of posts from families with kids and what they enjoyed. Here is a listing, anyway.

All Shook Up

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Spamalot -tickets hard to come by

Wicked - tickets hard to come by

The Lion King


Fiddler on the Roof

Some parents feel the subject matter of Mamma Mia is not appropriate for a 12 year old, that is up to you. Beauty & the Beast is wonderful, maybe not for a boy, however.

Movin Out is great music & dance, Good Vibrations gets good reviews from those on this site, and Rent, mixed reviews.

Off Broadway - Stomp. Blue Man Group

Great list! So far, my 11 and 13 year old boys' favorite is Stomp, but we have not seen all of those on the list. Spamalot is next on the list for my 13 year old. My 11 year old year old really wants to see Fiddler on the Roof. Depends a bit on their interests and personality. BTW, my husband and I also loved Stomp.

Have fun!!

Good list, but I think "Movin' Out" is way too adult for a 12-year-old.
