The Kathy & Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young

What is Theatre for the Very Young?

  • A professional performance for children ages 05 years old and their grown-ups
  • An artistic experience that overcomes age and developmental barriers, language, and developmental barriers, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show.
  • A way for focus and creative thinking to be nurtured, or even discovered for the first time!
  • A cultural experience for the very young on their own terms
  • An inventive approach to making quality art experiences
  • A fun and inspiring experience for both children and their parents

"Theatre for the Very Young engages both parents and their pre-school children in creative experiences. The fourth wall is dissolved as young ones willingly become a part of the experience."

—Rosemary Newcott, director

Alliance Rendering 1

The Alliance Theatre has released final design renderings of its theater transformation, which is scheduled to begin in the summer of 2017. This is the first major building reinvention for the theater since its construction in 1968 as part of the Woodruff Arts Center campus. The Alliance Theatre will perform its 2017/18 season in 12 different locations in the metro Atlanta area, bringing live theater out into the community it serves. The Alliance plans to return to its new theater space for its 50th anniversary season in the fall of 2018.
