Dallas Children's Theater is a professional theater serving a youth and family audience and was named, "one of the top 5 theaters for children in the country" by Time Magazine.
Dallas Children's Theater is an outstanding venue for collaboration with local artists, designers, playwrights, and educators. Our directors and administrators are proud to contribute to the growing body of theater for youth with the commission and development of new plays. Familiar stories, literary works, histories, and biographies are also a part of our programming. Each season is thoughtfully chosen to produce plays that are engaging, enriching, and educational. Our productions promote social values, moral integrity, and reflect the cultural diversity of our community through casting and themes.
Our continued excellence in community outreach and theater arts has earned Dallas Children's Theater national acclaim. Both American Theater magazine and TIME magazine recognize Dallas Children's Theater as one of the leading professional family theaters in the United States. And our unparalleled leadership and vision have garnered the endorsement and support nationally of National Endowment for the Arts, Texas Commission on the Arts, Hearst Foundation, and Kresge Foundation. We believe theater provides a unique learning opportunity, which allows children exposure to ideas and imagery that reflect their own experiences and challenge their own understanding of the world in which they live. To this end, Dallas Children's Theater aims to engage and inspire children, to produce theater that reaches beyond the stage.
