It's time to hit the stage, kids! Birmingham Children's Theatre is one of the nation's oldest AND largest professional theatre companies for young audiences, so why not make it a stop next time you're in the city. It's SUCH great entertainment for kids!
The Birmingham Children's Theatre produces high-quality, professional theatrical entertainment (and curriculum-relevant arts education experiences!) for children and families, and it's a super fun way to spend an afternoon or evening.
The Birmingham Children's Theatre operates the 150 seat Dominick Studio Theatre, as well as the intimate 250 seat Wee Folks' Theatre (perfect for students ages 3 to 6 years) AND if that wasn't enouugh, they also operate the larger 950 seat Mainstage Theatre (perfect for students ages 6 years and up!).
The shows that the Birmingham Children's Theatre are often classics, so more that likely kids will already be going into super fun shows that they know and love! Examples of shows include Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Willa Wonka, and the Legend of Sleepy Hollow, BUT there are very many more so signing up for a brochure is advised!
