New York City Children’s Theater is a nonprofit organization that creates original, entertaining and enriching theater for young audiences and adults to enjoy together. We produce high-quality, original productions—as culturally rich as New York itself—and develop robust arts-in-education programs, serving children in all communities across the five boroughs.
