We time our visits to Sydney based on plays being performed at Ensemble. Every performance has been top class. We suggest a drink in the bar before the show or dinner in the restaurant afterwards with a wonderful view overlooking yachts & Sydney harbour.

This theatre gets packed on a regular basis; but you'll need to pick the play carefully as it's not always commercial types of plays. But they have a bar and a lovely scenic view at the back. the theatre is a good size. Worth checking...More

I think your family is a little young for the Ensemble. I would recommend Aladdin the musical and check the Opera House for special shows, especially since it is the holidays.
