Best camera+lens for kids school indoor play?


I play with a lot of gear but this one has me scratching my heads a little because it needs to cover full  range from wide to medium tele (for backstage as well as from the seats) and it's indoor.

My wife would be taking the pics so there will be no changing lens and she doesn't really care about sensor size, it's me who would like good pictures instead of some crappy compacts with long zoom.

So here's what I'm thinking:

- A6000 with 16-70 f4 (seems a little short?)

- Fuji X-T1 with upcoming 18-135 (long end is F5.6, thinking it maybe too slow)

- Or just give up and go with the 1" Sony RX10 18-200 F2.8

What do you guys think, any other suggestions would be welcome, I'm open to Sony and any other brands.
