We bought tickets in the Grand Circle, the section that is the furthest away from the stage. Even with small children, it was easy to see everything happening. The experience was amazing and fun. The animals on stage were our favorite! Definitely worth the price.

Managed to get last minute tickets on the day for the midweek matinee. Efficient service at the box office and also inside the theatre. Excellent show and great value seats for the price we paid. Would highly recommend.
