A Theater for Children
Providing affordable live entertainment and educational theater programs to build character and community in Sonoma County.
A Theater For Children was founded in 2016 to serve the residents of Sonoma County. Our goal is to become a national role model demonstrating how to provide children with life-changing opportunities to develop character and confidence, promoting cooperation among multiple generations, and building community through the theater arts.
A Theater For Children provides quality affordable live entertainment to the community as well as after school theater programs, available at no cost to participants. Participation in the magic of theater, whether behind the scenes or in front of an audience, sparks imagination and ingenuity and helps to build community and character. Our after-school theater program at Kid Street Learning Center and Boys & Girls Club sites is up and running. We are working with other local agencies to expand to additional school sites in 2018.
Each year we produce at least two main stage productions. Our shows include well-loved interpretations of classic children’s literature, folklore, or mythology. Our first show will be McQuadle: A Dragon’s Tale in March of 2017. In September 2017, we presented Cinderella, Cinderella, a participation play for children, with lots of exciting opportunities for children in the audience to get on stage and influence the unfolding of the story. In March 2018, we presented Dorothy & The Wizard of Oz, also a child participation play. Currently we are planning another child participation play for Fall 2018, which will most likely be an original play created by Sonoma County artists.
Staffed mostly by volunteers, we are a non profit 501 (c) (3) organization, under the fiscal sponsorship of Inquiring Systems INC. (ISI) in Sonoma, CA. With their administrative support and the financial contributions of local partner organizations and individual sponsors, we hope to provide our services for many years to come.
