The best shows for young audiences to see in Paris right now


From Juliette's inner journey on the shores of her Archipelago to an enchanted foray into the African savannah, via a comedy of manners accessible from the age of 9, the shows for young audiences of the moment hide many surprises. Le Figaro offers you some ideas for shows...

Learned Women

at the Comédie Saint-Michel

On Thursdays and Saturdays, the Oxymore company slams the harsh precepts of the classic Les Femmes Savantes

into the air of the Comédie Saint-Michel theater.

(1672) by the master Molière, whose 400th anniversary we celebrated last January.

The character comedy, in five acts and in verse, denounces the ambient pedantry and the reign of false scholars that Molière witnessed towards the end of the 17th century.

In the guise of Monsieur Trissotin, a dishonest man who wants the fortune of a family already torn apart by moral differences, the portrait of pernicious vices is painted.

Besides, no character is spared salient criticism and everyone takes it for their rank.

With great humor and derision, the actors embody this mismatched family in which each member struggles to be heard but where the words have lost their meaning.

The critical subtext of the comedy, excessively mimed,

“Les Femmes Savantes” until July 23 at the Comédie Saint-Michel (Paris 5th).

From 9 years old.

Archipelago at Le Funambule theater - Montmartre (18th) Pierre Dolzani

Archipelago: expanse of sea dotted with groups of islands relatively close to each other.

The very notion of archipelago exists because of the relationship and proximity between the islands that compose it.

It is a philosophical adventure, accessible from 3 years old, that the Castagne à 3 company is currently playing at the Le Funambule – Montmartre theater for the good of all young minds.

Set to incredible music that sticks in your head, the show follows the inner journey of little Juliette, sailing on the shores of her imagination to counter boredom.

Over the course of her encounters, the young girl asks herself a whole host of questions and above all, seeks to fight against the mysterious climate crisis that is befalling the archipelago.

By songs that borrow from different styles,

the actors bring the public to celebrate mutual aid between neighbors and frank camaraderie and, through touching and relevant remarks, raise awareness of the climate emergency.

First imagined to be performed by children at the Saint-Michel de Picpus school in 2015, the play so enthused its initial audience that it was rewritten in five roles two years later and performed at the theater in stride.

“Archipelago” until July 31 at the Le Funambule theater – Montmartre (Paris 18th).

From 3 years old.


The Lion King

at the Mogador Theater

The Lion King at the Mogador Theater (9th) Alessandro Pinna - Mogador 2021

The young lion cub Simba is born under a radiant sun and lives under the reign of his courageous father Mufasa, king of the jungle.

But the disloyalty of his uncle Scar forces him to begin a long and dangerous journey in the darkness of the African forest, supported by virtuous friends who will help him claim his throne.

Created on Broadway in 1997 with music by Elton John and lyrics by Tim Rice, the musical was exported ten years later to the Mogador theater in Paris.

She is now back under the baton of conductor Dominique Trottein under which parade the endearing and colorful characters taken from the classic Disney Studios (1994).

The rebellious lion Simba (Gwendal Marimoutou, glimpsed in The Voice, captivating), the dazed warthog Pumbaa and the witch Rafiki dance among hordes of antelopes,

of giraffes and elephants, and sing the wild and precious "cycle of life", which contains all the moral of the initiatory tale.

With great fanfare, the adventures cascade over our heroes until the final resolution, where everyone finally rests, hakuna matata (there is no problem)!

"The Lion King", until December 31, 2022, at the Mogador Theater (Paris 9).

From 10 years old.
