Valuable Stage & Life Skills

Children's Theatre

Children's Theatre offers opportunities for children ages 6-18 to participate in theatrical productions. Since 1993, the theatre has proudly staged performances of our best-loved stories, including Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Charlotte's Web, The Wizard of Oz, Cinderella, Peter Pan, Alice in Wonderland, Hansel and Gretel and Beauty and the Beast. Children not only perform and gain confidence but learn valuable stage and life skills like teamwork and responsibility.

Rediscover the loopy fun and the dark corners of J.M. Barrie's original novel with this faithful, fast-moving and easy-to-stage adaptation.
