If your family is full of little thespians, Massachusetts is center stage. The Boston Children’s Theater features live theater for children, by children, and rivals internet cat videos on the cuteness scale. The Amazing Things Art Center in Framingham has plays, shows and concerts aimed at a young audience. Take the family to the Arlington Children’s Theater, and you might catch a glimpse of the next Daniel Day-Lewis or Meryl Streep making their career debut. If you’re looking for something on a grander scale, Boston’s big venues like the Wang Theater and the Citi Emerson Colonial Theater regularly present family friendly fare. Any miniature Shakespeare would find a lot to love in Massachusetts.
