Matthews Playhouse is a perfect place for a young child to experience the magic of live theatre. Most shows run about one hour in length in order to hold the attention of children ages 3 and up. The costumes, music and young actors will captivate their imagination during the performance.

Shows for older children will be noted in the performance description.

While Matthews Playhouse loves babies and young toddlers, we ask that you wait until they are older to bring them to the theatre. Lighting and loud sounds can be disconcerting to them. Crying babies are uncomfortable for both the parents and other theatre patrons.

Everyone that enters the theatre must have a ticket. There are no refunds if you need to leave the theater early.
