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.

Please see the website for full descriptions.  Note: there are other times and dates for these shows, however in order to receive a group rate, the dates listed above are the ones selected for NEST Homeschool Group Purchases.
