Sunday was family day and we drove up to Seattle to attend the musical Annie at the Paramount Theater! What an amazing evening we had, the show was awesome! I love musicals and this show did not disappoint! First off the show is playing at the beautiful Paramount Theater – old architecture – when we first walked in Mason noticed the chandelier and goes “wow that is so beautiful, those are real diamonds!”
The play was so well scripted, the stage looked amazing, the actors did an amazing job, it was well choreographed, the music was beautiful. We loved every song and all the dancing. Our favorite character was Miss Hannigan she was very funny and Sandy the dog so cute – aren’t animals actors amazing?! The show is suitable for all ages and there is an intermission, perfect for the kids to get a few jiggles out before sitting back down. This is a show the whole family will love. Mason who is 7 years old was able to sit through the whole show without any trouble. I’m so glad Mason enjoys musicals as much as I do, and yes I’m sure I won’t always be able to say that ;)
Just a couple tips to make your visit more enjoyable – especially with kids!
- Don’t go in hungry, be sure to feed those little ones(& yourselves) before you go to your show, they do have a concession stand with a few snacks but you aren’t allowed to eat in the auditorium. Drinks are okay, and parents they do have adult drinks ;)
- PARKING! There is street parking but I will say it was VERY hard to find one so go for a parking garage. We parked in the Convention Center garage, it’s a short walk but do not forget where you parked(write it on your parking ticket). And the theater does have a loading zone to drop off passengers.
- My BIGGEST suggestion if you are bringing a child, get there early and go straight to get you a booster seat(seat cushion). They go quickly!! And I’m not just talking your small children, Mason is tall and we still didn’t get to them quick enough and he had to sit on my lap most of the show.
- I do have a discount for the show on Wednesday (look below)!
I hope you enjoy the play as much as we did!!
