Founded in 1978, Child’s Play Touring Theatre was the first theatre company to realize the value of children’s own writing and perform exclusively stories and poems written by young authors. Combining the important, imaginative writings of children with the craftsmanship of professional theatre artists and educators, They created a unique stage where children’s voices can be heard, examined and treasured.
A nationally recognized, 501(c )3 not-for-profit organization, they inspire young people to read, write and think creatively. The goal at Child’s Play is to help children understand the value and significance that writing and reading has on their lives. Their performances and workshops offer a powerful teaching tool that strengthens and enhances the teaching and learning process.
Over the years, Child’s Play has developed multiple partnerships with other arts education organizations to bring enhanced arts curricula to schools and communities throughout the United States. To date, we have reached over 4 million children, educators and adults through workshops, residencies, after school programs, and summer camps, and have performed the original works of over 15,000 young writers.

Their Mission

To motivate children to write and think creatively and to enhance writing education in schools by sharing drama-based approaches to writing instruction.
