Why Children Love and Need Theatre
The minds and hearts of children are nurtured by live performance. Young audiences are changed and challenged by the experience of seeing characters up close. They may see themselves in the characters – or characters unlike themselves. This helps young audiences empathize with others and care about the world. Magical Theatre Company also encourages a love of storytelling – helping children become inquisitive, lifelong readers.
Magical Theatre is a place to make memories as families or classmates and enjoy the shared experience of seeing a live show onstage. Together, they are all inspired by the same performance they’ll remember for a long time.
Our new and upcoming shows will be just as exciting as our past ones. Take a look and see all the fun – then get ready to visit Magical Theatre Company at our next production!
