While your kids can experience just about every type of entertainment on the TV, computer and even your phone, there is nothing like seeing a show live and in person. And with the cooler weather, local theaters are offering a variety of shows this season to warm your heart or even chill your bones if that’s what you desire. From shows with plenty of LOL moments, to shows inspired by Disney movies, to shows full of suspense and drama, there is a production for every age and stage this fall. Click through the gallery to see what’s playing.

Into The Woods

“Happily ever after” is just the beginning in this musical collision of the original Grimm fairytales. When Cinderella, Jack, Rapunzel, Little Red and others venture into the woods after their heart’s desire, they get a lot more than they bargained for. And this is where the stories get all intertwined and the plot (like the beanstalk) thickens. Featuring one of Sondheim’s most celebrated scores of music, this Tony and Drama Desk Award-winning musical will take you “into the woods, to get the thing, that makes it worth the journeying.”
