Angelina Jolie Pitt took her children on a cultural excursion to London's West End theater district on Saturday for a performance of beloved fantasy musical Wicked.
Spotted exiting the Apollo Theatre after "one short day in the Emerald City," the Maleficent actress had at least four of her six children in tow – Zahara, 10, Shiloh, 8, and twins, Knox and Vivienne, both 7.
One fellow theatergoer tweeted that the actress's husband, Pitt, was also in attendance. However, he was not spotted leaving the theater with the rest of the group.
"Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt with their kids 6 rows in front of us at the theatre seeing Wicked!" the user wrote.
A source tells PEOPLE that the kids left with special Wicked treats.
"Angelina and the children all seemed really happy and were clutching Wicked drinking bottles as they left," the source said. "Angelina was clearly very protective. Like a big mother hen."
Wicked ensemble member Sam Salter also shared his excitement at the presence of Hollywood royalty, tweeting, "If the odds are in my favour there was an 89% chance Angelina Jolie saw me do a tilt in this afternoon's show."
Earlier this week, unearthed footage of a 25-year-old Jolie Pitt performing in an acting class hit the Internet. The star's talent was showcased in an emotional and wide ranging scene similar to that of her Academy Award-winning performance in 1999's Girl, Interrupted.
