In 1997, approximately fifty years into the Delray Beach Playhouse’s rich history, a children’s theatre program was initiated to fill a void in Palm Beach County’s cultural acts, and the response was astounding.
What began simply as acting classes with 7 children and our instructor, Miss Dolly, soon evolved into a full-fledged, performing arts curriculum of acting, stage movement, voice, dance and a multi-faced staff of accredited professionals in their respective fields. Enrollment virtually doubled every year, and soon enough, the Playhouse found itself hosting hundreds of “young adults” in classes and on its stage every year.
In 2005, the Children’s Theatre was added as an annex to the main theatre with 4,000 square feet of performance areas to support the growing children’s programming offered after school and on weekends.
Periodically through-out the year, we offer other children’s programs including:
– Musical Readings Improv Nights
– Parent’s Night Out Home School Classes
