Celebration: Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie took Maddox (left) to see the stage musical Wicked in London today for his 10th birthday with Shiloh, Zahara and Pax also coming along for the afternoon out

It's been a wet and dull summer's day in London - so what better way to entertain your bored children in the holidays than an afternoon out at the theatre?

That was Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's plan, as they took their brood out in London today to see the West End smash hit musical Wicked.


Fun day out: The family had been to Victoria's Apollo Theatre for the matinee performance


The family had clearly fallen under the production's spell too, and were seen beaming broadly as they left Victoria's Apollo Theatre to get a car back to their base in Richmond.

Daughter Shiloh, five, in particular seemed smitten by the show, and left clutching a cute winged monkey, a stuffed toy version of one of the show's fantastical characters.


Hands on: Brad and Angelina were beaming as they herded their happy brood to a waiting car


She and Maddox were joined by sister Zahara, six, and Pax, seven with three-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne deemed a bit too young for the afternoon's entertainment.

Angelina, 36, looked rather dressed up considering it was the middle of the afternoon, and was stunning in a classic LBD and nude heels


Daddy duty: Brad is currently in the UK filming World War Z but took time out of his filming schedule to go out with his family


Brad, 47, however was far more casual in a dark indigo shirt, denim jeans and black boots.

He had taken some time out from filming his latest movie World War Z in London to join his family for the matinee performance.

Angelina certainly wants to make sure her children are seeing all the sights London has to offer, and last week, took them to the city's Aquarium while Brad was busy.


Hollywood in town: Waiting fans could not wait to catch a glimpse of the A-List stars


The cast members were said to be delighted to have the famous family come to see their Wizard of Oz themed show.

'There was definitely a big excitement backstage! Everyone was on a high,' a Wicked cast member told Us Weekly.

The family did not sit in a VIP box but sat in the orchestra area and were surrounded by a few empty, reserved seats to maintain their privacy.


Daddy's little girl: Brad helped Zahara into the car by giving her a lift up as Angelina got in


Angelina has already been seen popping into a toy shop in Richmond to buy her children presents, including water pistols and pretend money.

Brad is in the capital filming his new zombie movie, World War Z. He is also producing the film, an adaption of Max Brooks’s novel.
