My niece recently turned 9 and when I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she told me she wanted to see a play. So I looked into local productions and just happened to find that the Utah Children's Theatre was running Snow White, which happens to be one of her favorite stories. I was so excited to find out that they had enough tickets left to host all the girls in our family for a fun girl's night out with the aunts, cousins, and of course, Grandma.
It was such a fun show, they ran one of the original story lines, rather than the Disney version that the little girls were used to, so it was fun to talk with them about the similarities and differences.
The dwarfs were definitely a favorite among the little girls, they were the perfect balance of funny, caring and sweet in their interactions with Snow White.
The special effects were actually pretty cool, they made the magic mirror look pretty authentic with a projection, hologram something-or-other they had rigged up and it really was just a whole magical experience and made the perfect family girls' night out! (We saw quite a few little girls there with their moms all dressed up like Snow White princesses, so we'll have to remember that for next time!)
The girls have been talking about it enough that the boys decided it wasn't just a girlie show and want to know when we are going to take them! I did see that they are starting Peter Pan next month so maybe we'll plan a boy's night next! I also saw, after the fact, that they now have a party room available for rent that would have been fun for our little birthday celebration.
All the shows we've ever seen at the Utah Children's Theatre have been spectacular! I love that they cater to children, I'd much rather take my kids to live theater than a movie any day and they make it so entertaining that my kids have come to prefer it as well!

The drinking fountains are original but everything else is new, including the bathrooms, subway tile from floor to ceiling and the family bath had a mini toilet which was a big hit with the kids of course.
