Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young

"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

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, developmental barriers, and language, while expanding the consciousness of very young audience members.
  • 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

Support for this program is provided by the Lettie Pate Evans Foundation.
