Want to share the love of live theater with your children? Below are some terrific opportunities.
Cleveland Playhouse Children's Series
Annually, NEST submits a group order at the end of August to secure the best pricing for tickets to the Children's Playhouse Series, held at the Cleveland Playhouse. This is an excellent opportunity to introduce and offer live theater to your children over the age of 2. Some performances are geared towards a specific age group, however, I have found all ages will be able to appreciate every performance and find something of value.

All shows have recommended ages or grades. However it is recommended to see beyond those suggestions as homeschoolers. If your older
students are into set design, lighting, sound and direction, they can
enjoy the simplest of performances looking for these elements and could
present an elaborate breakdown, presentation for you at home.
Additionally, the younger ones, will also enjoy the sites and sounds of
the more mature performances, as each performance is no longer than 55
mins. Having seen many of these performances, there is so much to learn from attending each performance
no matter the subject matter. As homeschoolers we have full
control over how deep or light we wish to explore a topic with our
children. It is up for interpretation, always.
