The Playhouse is a very special, interactive experience designed for your little theatre-goers, where local high school performers bring classic fairy tales to life on our Magic Castle stage. With very simple sets and costumes, and lots of opportunities to get up and wiggle, this story-teller style theatre is perfect for young audience members, suggested ages two to six years old.
Performances are approximately 55 minutes in length,
at 10:00am and 12:00pm on Saturdays and Sundays.
When you arrive at the theatre....
Audiences members may wait in the Courtyard in front of the Children's Theatre. A few minutes prior to the performance, members of the cast will gather the audience to lead everyone into the theatre together!
