Play Dates

What is it? Play Dates enable parents/guardians to attend a performance while their children ages 6–11 play theater games, make crafts and explore themes inspired by the production with Two River teaching artists. Play Dates will take place in a rehearsal studio at Two River Theater. Parents/guardians will have the chance to check-in with their children during intermission.

When are Play Dates happening? We will host one Play Date per subscription series show during a 3:00PM Saturday matinee. Meet the teaching artists and drop off your child in the lobby starting at 2:45PM. End time of each Play Date will be dependent on length of show.
