About Playtime 2022
PLAYtime! is an engaging theatre series for children aged 3 to 6. Each experience is an opportunity to spark your child’s creativity and encourage conversations and learning through the performing arts.
Find the magic in the ordinary and create meaningful experiences as PLAYtime! 2022 explores stories of mindfulness, the intangible strength of breath, courage through challenges, and imaginative play.
What does it mean to breathe and just be aware of one’s own feelings? How can grown-ups navigate big feelings for the little ones? The productions are child-centric, taking into account their perspectives, joys and anxieties. It is our hope that these stories will provide opportunities for caregiver and child to open up about their feelings and find hope and comfort in one another.
PLAYtime! productions have been redesigned to encourage meaningful interaction during the performance and within personal spaces to keep families and their little ones safe. All performances are Relaxed Performances and are open to children with diverse needs.
PLAYtime! Craft Kit
Each production comes with a specially curated activity craft kit that is packed with fun play ideas for hands-on learning with your little ones. You can extend the PLAYtime! experience into your home with crafts and activities that have been designed for children aged 3 to 6. Each kit costs $12. Materials and instructions are included in each kit. Pre-order your craft kit and collect them before your show. Only a limited number of kits will be available for purchase on-site.
