Seating is General Admission on carpet, with some chairs for parents who prefer not to sit on the floor.These performances are held indoors.

* Magical Series - Sensory-Friendly Performances:  All performances at the Children's Theatre are open to all attendees, with any special needs.  The Playhouse Series Productions makes a great sensory-friendly experience, as production seating on the carpet is wiggle friendly, with quiet areas nearby, and the interactive nature of the production can be helpful for audience members who like to speak up :).  On Saturdays September 21 and April 25 at 2pm, we will also limit the audience size, giving each audience member a little extra space.
