The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati isn't just a professional theater for children - it's also the oldest children's theater in the nation! This year, after the pandemic put many shows on hold, The Children's Theatre of Cincinnati is turning 103 years old.
To celebrate this significant milestone, Artistic Director Roderick Justice says they’re celebrating with a four-show series that hasn't been done since the 18-19 season.
“Every one of these shows is incredible and we’re so excited to bring them to the stage as we celebrate 103 years of The Children’s Theatre,” he says.
The four shows for this year include:
- Disney’s Descendants: The Musical (October 8-17)
- Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer JR. (December 10-19)
- Princess & Frog (a world-premiere!) February 18-27
- Disney’s Moana JR. (April 15-24)
“It’s very rare that a children’s theater gets to premiere a new musical, so we’re very thrilled to be able to premier the Princess & Frog this February,” says Justice. “We’ll also be ending our 103rd season with Moana JR., and we’re going all out with giant, elaborate puppetry and blacklighting.”
Justice says The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati is excited to see everyone back at the theater this year. To give you the best bang for your show-biz buck, The Children’s Theatre offers subscriptions, but you can also purchase tickets per show.
