Welcome to Children’s Theatre Digital where we link you to the best of children’s theatre from across the globe. Whether you are aged up to 12, an educator, a parent or carer, you are in the right place to begin your discovery. We want to inspire children and their families to sustain their experience with live theatre, and engage them in theatre even if they can’t access it physically.
Creativity is such an important part of a child’s development, it’s what encourages innovation, collaboration and key communication skills. We’ve been driven by the idea to get you straight to the source of children’s theatre content so you can do less scrolling and more viewing.
This version of the site is just the beginning. We’ve created this on free time, instinct and expertise to get the foundations of the idea going because we believe it has the potential to be a vital resource for children’s theatre to be better than ever. As theatre makers ourselves, and Artistic Directors of our own companies, we know how important it is to reach audiences, to grow connections as well as make new ones. We will ensure the site has more accessibility tools as the site evolves and is diverse in content so everyone feels at home; after all, that’s what storytelling and sharing is about, inclusivity.
Most importantly of all, we’d like to say a huge thank you to all the artists whose relentless hard-work means we can link you to these incredible theatre experiences for you, your family and friends. They existed long before us and have helped get this platform going. We are in awe. Don’t miss out, if you can, give them a ‘like’, ‘follow’ them, ‘share’ or ‘retweet’ them, ‘sign up’ to them, tell a friend about them and so on.
Thanks again, and we hope you enjoy the site.
