Children's Theater Guide 2014

Kid-friendly and family performances on local stages during the 2014-2015 season.

School hallways aren’t the only place drama returns this September.

Local theaters and companies throughout the Delaware Valley launch their 2014-2015 seasons, featuring plenty of family-friendly performances that cater specifically to kids. Fun for the whole family, many of the productions are dedicated children’s theatre, while others feature shorter-length performances, youth ensembles, auditions and audience participation.

From Annie at the Academy of Music to Hamlet at Media’s Hedgerow Theatre, Sleeping Beauty at South Jersey’s Broadway Theatre of Pitman to Harry the Dirty Dog at Wilmington’s DuPont Theatre, there is something for everyone in the family to enjoy. Fairy tales to musicals, classics to modern twists, escape in worlds of adventure just a few miles away from home.

Browse this guide for a look into the nearby theater performances for kids and families in the Philadelphia, South Jersey and Delaware areas – complete with a backstage look at Walnut Street Theatre’s Alice in Wonderland, Jr. and recommendations for the whole family, teens and theater-loving kids.
