The family owned and operated children's arts studio is in its 10th year of offering an eclectic selection of dance and theatre group classes for curious and creative creatures ages 2–18. Courses, which include tap, jazz, ballet, acting for film, stage acting, and musical theatre, to name a few, are divided by age and experience level, and typically meet for one hour every week. Off Broadway's passionate and professional staff of instructors promises to lead children down a path to greater self-discipline through performance, and all of the fun and encouraging classes are taught in a warm and friendly environment.
With 26 seasons under their belt, The Children's Theatre strives to inspire kids to express their creativity through entertaining, educational performances. Children stare as live performers act out the The Brave Little Tailor, an ancient Brothers Grimm fairy tale that reflects on modern troubles with a gentle lesson about bullying. In the story, a tailor strikes out into the world, only to run into a passing giant, who challenges the tailor to feats of strength such as squeezing water from a boulder or not crying while watching Brian's Song. Seating in the intimate, 99-person theater is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open a half-hour before performances so that audience members can snag spots in the front row or on a ticket taker's shoulders.
