Make a Reservation

What is your children’s ticket policy?

At Children’s Theater Series shows, children of all ages are welcome and children under the age of one will be admitted without charge to sit on an adult’s lap. Playhouse Square does not censor performances or make any guarantees of show content. We encourage parents to use their discretion when deciding if a show is appropriate for their child. Regardless of age, all children must be seated with an adult and children over the age of one must have a ticket. Any person disrupting a performance or inhibiting the enjoyment of an event for guests may be removed from the theater without refund.

What else can we do while visiting?

Consider adding a children’s workshop to your theater experience before or after your show. They’re a great way to expand your child’s understanding of what they see on stage. Led by professional teaching artists, these forty five-minute workshops are fun, educational and only $5 per child, but space is limited, so you should make your reservations in advance.
