Can someone help me build a Broadway-themed playlist for a party?

I've been charged with making the music playlist for a party for a co-worker, who happens to be a fan of showtunes. We thought it would be fun to mix in a large quantity of showtunes into this background music and I am just totally blanking on some great Broadway songs for parties. His is a huge fan of Les Miserables, so there will be a bit of that, but that's not music I want to have a good time with.
Oh, and there will be some young children there, so nothing bawdy, racy or with swearing, which eliminated literally half of my favorite showtunes and explains my difficulty coming up with good ones.
And any suggestions about ordering the list (I want to aspire past simply putting it on shuffle :-D ) would be appreciated. I used to be good at making playlists and mixtapes but I'm having a bit of trouble with this one.
