On Tour with Dallas Children's Theater
Recognized by Time Magazine as one of the top 5 children's theater companies in the US, and the only one of that group to tour nationally, Dallas Children's Theater travels coast to coast with professional large-scale productions designed to stir the heart, stretch the mind and promote education. Learn about The BFG (Big Friendly Giant) 2015-2016 Season and Mufaro's Beautiful Daughters ~ An African Tale 2016-2017 Season.
Dallas Children's Theater has been designated an American Masterpieces Touring Artist by the National Endowment for the Arts.
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.
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.
