Zorro at Utah Children's Theater - Review

"At the fiesta Don Carlos wants his daughter, the beautiful Valencia to marry Don Alejandro's son, the charming but seemingly weak Don Diego. But treasure and treachery is in the midst of Old California, lead by Captain Ramon, the bumbling Sargeant Gonzales and a mysterious figure. Who will stop them? Zorro! With a flurry of a cape, the flash of a sword and a crack of the whip our masked hero will bring the greedy tyrants to justice!"

The exciting and absolutely entertaining production of Zorro is playing at Utah Children's Theater now. It will run through April 25, 2015 and you can purchase tickets online at or by phone at 801-532-6000. • 801-532-6000 • 3605 South State Street, South Salt Lake, UT 84115

We were thrilled to start our Spring Break by attending Zorro at Utah Children's Theater last Friday night. As soon as we entered, we were impressed by the new theater. There is still a bit of construction going on but the retro style and all the interior details immediately make you feel like you've entered a professional theater. The restrooms were stylish and CLEAN (which is totally awesome). Every seat in the theater is a good seat. It's small enough and surrounds the stage so that the children are fully immersed in the action.

While we were in our seats excitedly waiting for the show to begin, Aubrey recognized the picture of the theater that I posted on Instagram and realized that we were both in the same theater. Aubrey and I have been long time Twitter friends but since she lives in Seattle, we've never met in real life. It was so fun to finally meet and introduce our families. She and her children are as beautiful in real life as they are online.

The night had to be amazing!

The show starts right off with a dramatic and astonishing scene. It immediately captured the attention of all my children and kept us spellbound throughout. The cast was funny and engaging. The sword fighting scenes were expertly choreographed to be thrilling yet just over-the-top enough to amuse the young audience.

The story was simple enough for young children to follow but also kept the adults in the audience fully entertained and satisfied. There was plenty of action, romance, mystery and humor to keep everyone happy. My kids loved it and the audience was completely wrapped up in the action on the stage.

Following the fabulous show, the actors were in the lobby to meet their young audience. My girls were especially thrilled to meet the beautiful actress who played Valencia. (My boys attended the show and totally loved it but are not very willing to pose for pictures lately.)

After thoroughly enjoying Zorro, my family is definitely fans of Utah Children's Theaters and the kids are already begging to get tickets to Winnie the Pooh that will premier in May.

Thanks to Utah Children's Theater we had a fabulous family night out at the theater.

**Thanks to Utah Children's Theater, my family and I got complimentary tickets in exchange for an honest review. No compensation was received. All opinions are my own.**
