The Children's Theatre, Cincinnati, OH
The mission of The Children’s Theatre is to educate and to entertain by producing significant theater experiences, created especially for young people and their families and presented with a creative ensemble of the highest professional quality. Whether it’s through the values in Aesop’s Fables or the beauty of American Sign Language featured in Beethoven by Heart, we believe that art, fun, and education must work hand-in-hand to cultivate young minds and offer opportunities for them to learn from the history, life lessons, and values presented to them through dramatic storytelling, dance, and opera.
We create 3 major productions for elementary aged children and one for high school aged children each season. Average attendance during a season is 70,000. We are dedicated to serving the communities in the three states that make up the greater Cincinnati area. We believe every child should be allowed the opportunity to grow through the arts and are committed to maintaining affordable ticket prices and sponsoring organizations when we can utilizing our endowment, which provides the necessary funding to expand educational services, to maximize the number of school children who can attend performances, to provide financial aid programs to economically challenged children who might not otherwise be able to attend, and to support our staff as we carry out our mission.
