When a friend and I produced a high school production of the musical ” Into the Woods” we used a live chicken on stage and what a hit it was with the audience. A comment he made has always stuck with me: “Kids and animals steal the show”. How true. Think about Sandy in “Annie” or Toto in “The Wizard of Oz”–scene stealers. The same applies to kids in musicals. Audiences love them. There are fabulous musicals with casts of extremely talented young performers. Here are a few clips of some amazing kids. Enjoy!
