Kid-Friendly Arts & Entertainment Picks for April

BalletMet’s “Cinderella”

BalletMet presents its lush and charming production of “Cinderella” this spring at the Ohio Theatre. The staging is the height of classical-style ballet, with elaborate costuming and scenery and masterful choreography, yet offers a fresh retelling of the beloved, rags-to-riches tale.

The company offers four performances of “Cinderella,” scheduled April 8-10. Tickets start at $18.50.

The Columbus Symphony Orchestra will perform the score to “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” as the movie is shown at the Ohio Theatre.

Harry Potter and the Symphony

We won’t judge if you find an event you can take your children to, say it’s for them, get parent points for doing so, and are secretly elated because you want to see it just as badly—or even moreso—than your kids . We see you.

Such a show will take place when the Columbus Symphony Orchestra performs Nicholas Hooper’s score to “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” the franchise’s fifth film, live onstage as the movie is shown on the screen at the Ohio Theatre. There will be two evening shows and one matinee performance April 1-2. Tickets start at $50.50.
