Looking for a lively way to spend New Year's Eve with the family? Go to the Santa Monica Playhouse for their annual New Year's Eve Musical Revue. The local theater offers two performances of their celebratory show to ring in 2017. Admission also includes a buffet dinner with champagne or sparkling non-alcoholic cider, tiaras, noisemakers and "general merrymaking." Those who opt for the later show, at 9:30pm, can stay to ring in 2017 at midnight, while the earlier show, at 6pm, allows for you to make it home to put the kids to bed and still enjoy the ball drop as an adult.
