    If the tickets aren't already purchased maybe explain your situation to your parents. Perhaps you could go different nights so they can watch DD on the night you and DH go? Although you won't get to experience the show together I'm sure the grandparents would love to spend time with your little one.

    We are going to a musical later in the year and leaving the girls with their grandparents. Grandparents are then going to see the same show the following weekend.

    A resounding no from me.

    Mainly for the sake of other people who have paid a lot of money for their tickets. Unless you would be willing to leave at the first sign of noise/annoyance to others.

    I don't have a toddler yet but I wouldn't take one to a show like this, for your sake and everyone else's. The lion king doesn't come to Australia very often and it's expensive to see, for many people it's a once off opportunity. I saw it in London and honestly would have been quite upset if a bored/crying baby ruined the experience for me. Also, for your own sake, find a sitter and have a night out where you can relax.

    If it were me, I wouldn't. Hubby and I absolutely adore musical theatre but we certainly wouldn't entertain the thought of bringing our toddler. If it was a night show, he would be horrendously overtired. If it was a matinee show, there is no way he would sit down and both of us would hate for him to potentially ruin the experience for anyone else, or for one of us to have to potentially miss parts of the show by having to take him out. It's all a lot of "potentially" and "maybe" (as are most things when toddlers are concerned), but it's too much of a risk for me, considering how much theatre tickets are (for me, and for the others who might be disturbed).

    Thanks for the replies! I was leaning towards no so this has confirmed it for me. Thanks 2giraffes, that's a great suggestion, I might ask my parents if they'd be interested in going on separate nights.

    Nope ever ever, and I'd be incredibly annoyed if someone did. My almost 18 month old can't even sit still while grocery shop, let alone through a musical.
