Lythgoe Family Productions produces fun, musical theatre the whole family can enjoy. Known for their creativity and involvement in television hits American Idol and So You Think You Can Dance, the Lythgoes are dedicated to bringing affordable theatre to families across America. Bringing the longstanding British tradition of pantomimes to the United States, Los Angeles area audiences know them from Aladdin and His Winter Wish and A Snow White Christmas at The Pasadena Playhouse, and previously A Cinderella Christmas and A Snow White Christmas at the El Portal Theatre.
Based on the Grimm fairytales and others, each story has been modernized with topical scripts for parents and well known pop songs for kids. The Lythgoes pride themselves on creating a memorable experience families can share together.
The show includes the family musical interactive fun that LFP is known for, with beloved fairytale characters singing well known pop songs; from Snow White singing Katy Perry's "Firework," to Aladdin singing One Direction's "That's What Makes You Beautiful," and the Sheriff of Nottingham's own rendition of Lady Gaga's "Applause." Everyone will be singing along and dancing in the aisles! So come cheer your favorite Princess and Boo! Captain Hook as he tries to spoil the fun.
LFP producer Kris Lythgoe said, "Princess and Pirates Live is a Panto style sing-a-long concert, the perfect way to introduce children to theatre. There will be swashbuckling sword fights and magic wands and tiaras, the perfect day out with your kids this summer."
