Each touring production is selected and designed with a youth and family audience in mind from titles and materials that reflect the cultural diversity of our world community. They encompass a combination of new plays, familiar stories, literary works, biographies, mythology, folk tales, music, dance, and puppetry.

With such a vast and impressionable audience to serve, our productions usually target a different age range every other touring season. Study guides accompany each production and a variety of curriculum based workshops and residencies are also made available to teachers and students.

Now celebrating our 28th season, Dallas Children’s Theater began a local touring program in 1985 with a Native American piece entitled Legend of the Bluebonnet. In 1989, the touring roster expanded to statewide and regional venues. In 1996, we launched our first national tour. September 2006 marked Dallas Children’s Theater introduction to the world stage, as the theater was honored with an invitation to perform at the 2006 Shanghai International Children’s Culture And Arts Expo in Shanghai, China.
