Theater for Families

Theater for Young Audiences

Theater for Families at the 14th Street Y

Here at the Theater at the 14th Street Y, we believe that all children should experience the magic of live performance, sit excitedly for unknowns, and meet new characters to spark their imagination. We create platforms that bring artists and children together to create a new generation of theater-goers.

We’re beyond excited for the second year of our Theater for Family series featuring seven new plays and events that share the creative process with children.

Let the magic begin!
