Child’s Play Touring Theatre is a national touring theatre company dedicated exclusively to performing stories and poems written by children.  By combining children’s imagination with the artistry of adult professional actors and musicians, Child’s Play has created one of the most innovative children’s theatres in the country.  According to the Chicago Tribune, “Child’s Play’s enthusiasm for their work is so infectious it’s hard to tell who is having more fun – the actors or the children.”

Since 1978, Child’s Play has toured to 36 states from Alaska to Florida.  The company has reached an audience over 4 and a half million and has performed in such prestigious venues as The Goodman Theatre, Brooklyn Academy of Music, Tribeca Performing Arts Center, Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, Smithsonian Institute, Annenberg Center, Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center, Wolftrap Performing Arts Park and the Anchorage Performing Arts Center.

The mission of Child’s Play is to share, encourage and validate the creativity of children by presenting original works of theatre, music and dance adapted from stories and poems written by young authors.  Child’s Play is able to carry out its mission thanks to the generous support of the following: Alphawood Foundation; Charles Schwartz Foundation; the City of Chicago – Department of Cultural Affairs; the Office of Cook County State’s Attorney; the Illinois Arts Council – a State Agency; Kraft Foods; Marshall Field’s; McDonald’s; Morse Charitable Trust; National Endowment for the Arts; Polk Bros. Foundation; Walter and Caroline Sueske Trust; Woods Foundation; and WNUA Cares for Kids Charities.
