Live performance venues for 4-year-old?

I just took my 4 year old daughter to the BACT production of Pippi Longstocking, and she loved it! The play was approximately an hour long, which seemed like a perfect amount of time for her attention span and engagement. I am searching for other affordable performances, musical, dance, theatrical, that might be fun to take her to. We attend all of the free library events, but try to save some money for fee-based activities. We are in the East Bay. Looking forward to any recommendations you might have. Thank you!

My children greatly enjoyed live performances at the Young Performers Theater at Fort Mason,  They are children performing at a high level, my children were inspired by seeing these programs. We also greatly enjoyed the Masque Unit Theatre of Marin, a group of women who do an annual performance for the children of Marin. They perform in early spring, this year on March 4, at a lovely theatre, where every seat is a good one. They perform at the Showcase Theatre a at the Marin Center in San Rafael. The price of tickets for both of these venues is wonderfully affordable. Enjoy!

Fantasy Forum is is just the thing- it's a theater company designed for the littlest ones and it's a hidden gem. Shows are all short for young attention spans and the actors do wonderful interactions with the kids to help entertain and accustom kids to the theater. The shows are at Lesher Center in Walnut Creek - the next one is Jack and the Beanstalk.
