Summer Hot Dog Productions

The sad news is ... the 2019 Summer Hot Dog Season has come to a close.  Thank you to the 5,000+ community members who helped make this another memorable summer!


The good news is... we have announced our 2019-2020 Main Stage and Playhouse Seasons!  We'll hope to see you at the theatre soon!


Purchase Tickets





Summer Hot Dog Series performances are held outside. Bring a blanket (or low-backed chair only) and a picnic, or purchase hot dogs, salades and other delicious options from the Friends of the Palo Alto Children's Theatre!

* Sensory-Friendly Performances:  All performances at the Children's Theatre are open to all attendees, with any special needs.  The Summer Hot Dog Season makes a great sensory-friendly experience, as productions are performed in natural light, with no loud sound cues - plus, the outdoor seating is wiggle friendly, with quiet areas nearby.  On the first Thursday of each run, we will also limit the audience size, giving every audience member a little extra space.
