Let’s Watch A Musical!

Good morning guys! I took last week off because it was our “Spring Break” and the new RPS@Home lesson plans went live last week, which include a weekly music lesson. Last Friday’s lesson was from me! I read a book about the woodwind family. If you missed it, you can watch it here. Then you can visit my playlist to learn about and hear all of the woodwinds in action, and this playlist to learn to make your own woodwind instruments at home.

Today, though, the weather outside is frightful, so I plan to stay inside and watch a musical. I’m going to share some of my favorite musicals with you here, and which streaming services have them so you can watch one (or two, or ten!), today too.


  • Newsies
  • The Sound of Music
  • Mary Poppins
  • Annie
  • The Muppets
  • Aladdin (the live-action version, so we can see real people singing)
  • A Celebration of the Music from Coco
  • High School Musical (ages 8 and up)
  • Camp Rock
  • Lemonade Mouth


  • Chitty Chitty Bang Bang
  • Mary Poppins Returns
  • Shrek The Musical (word of warning, it’s not recommended for kids under 9, this is not the same as the movie)

Broadwayhd.com (you can do a 7 day free trial and cancel after that if you don’t want to pay for it) They have tons of musicals, but here are my picks to watch with kids

  • The Sound of Music
  • Peter Pan
  • Disney’s Broadway Hits at Royal Albert Hall
  • Oklahoma (for bigger kids)

For rent on Amazon or Youtube

  • The Wizard of Oz
  • Singin’ in the Rain
  • Oliver!
  • The Music Man
  • The Wiz (another recommended for kids 8 and up)
  • Guys and Dolls (for ages 10 and up)


Let me know if you and your family watch a musical together today!
