About the show

"The Big One-Oh!" is a triumphant new musical for the whole family based on the book of the same name. Recommended for kids 5+ but welcomes children of all ages. More…

Charley Maplewood has never been one for parties—that would require friends, which he doesn’t have. Well, unless you count his monster friends, but they’re only imaginary. But now that he’s turning ten—the big one-oh—he decides to throw a birthday party for himself, complete with a “House of Horrors” theme. Of course things don’t work out as he plans. Will Charley be able to pull it together before the big one-oh...becomes the big OH-NO!?

See it if Wonderful family show for children of all ages. Great staging.

Don't see it if If family show is not your thing, then skip this one.

Great fun & better than average children's theater, Entertaining, Delightful

See it if Atlantic always has great children's theater but the Big One-Oh beats the last few productions. Fresh & good moral to the story.

Don't see it if If you are looking for something unconventional for children - this isn't it. The gender roles and story line are both pretty traditional.

Don't see it if you do not have a child with you.

See it if You want to see a children's musical that is not all fluff but tackles real life issues that kids deal with. Great book, score, and acting!

Don't see it if Your child cannot sit through anything that is longer than an hour... this is a bit of a longer show, like 80 minutes or something.

See it if If you want to see a show to make you smile, this is it. The story is absolutely heart warming, and the actor’s energy is infectious.
