PlayTime Productions exists to inspire children through quality theatrical productions. This structured, creative theatre is performed by children for children. We develop a sense of purpose, responsibility and self-esteem in the performers while providing the audience with a fun family experience.
For over two decades, PlayTime Productions Children’s Theatre has been delighting audiences with its creative and spirited renditions of classic tales. Since its very first performance of The Red Shoes, PTP has staged more than a dozen productions, including The Little Match Girl, The Emperor’s New Clothes, and Sleeping Beauty. When performed by PlayTime Productions, each of these endearing stories is retold with an eye to the present, always with a twist and many a surprise. [Learn More…]

Since it was founded, PTP has embraced classic children’s tales for its signature productions. These tales are designed for casts of approximately 25 children, which is PTP’s target cast size. PTP’s productions are not simply recaps of the story line that has been told for generations. Instead, PTP retains the charm, creativity, and moral “lesson” of these timeless stories while injecting them with cultural richness, humor, and many modern plot twists. Themes are tied to the present, with something audiences of all ages will understand and enjoy. [Learn More…]
Want to try out for PlayTime shows? Find out all about it right here! Every show starts with an open casting call, meaning that anyone between 8 and 18 may audition and the roles are not pre-cast. We love to cast young people with a broad range of skills, including brand new students. PlayTime appeals to children of all kinds of talents and ambitions—those who are actively involved in many activities, and those for whom PTP is their only group activity. For many in the cast, this will be their first play. Children do not have to prepare memorized pieces to audition, they just must be ready to read, sing a little, and try a few dance steps.
