Beach Blanket Babylon

We don’t usually like to put musical shows in these guides; the reason is simple: shows can open on Friday and then close Saturday before the matinee. Beach Blanket Babylon, on the other hand, is a local institution. It skewers popular culture through song and dance, and updates its act every year. The show has sold out every performance for the last 32 years and the reason why is simple: it’s funny, it’s clever and the cast wears gigantic, ridiculously ornate hats that would make Carmen Miranda blush. Get your tickets before your trip and take the young theatre fan in your family.
