About this Article

Heading out to the theater can be a special family outing, especially around the holidays. For youngsters, in particular, it can be a chance to step into a magical world of lights, costumes and make believe. "Theater is so important -- especially for young audiences. We know that we are planting a seed for future theatergoers," said Andy Hite, artistic director at the Marriott Theatre, which is staging "Cinderella" starting Nov. 17.
