NYCCT's Junior Producers

Give the child in your life the unique opportunity to see a project go from the page to the stage as a New York City Children’s Theater JUNIOR PRODUCER! Our Junior Producers go behind-the-scenes with us and find out what it takes to transform an idea into a brand-new production for young audiences. Along the way, they learn the importance of collaboration, problem-solving and creativity.

Invest with a gift of $1,000 and help to underwrite our next mainstage production. As our thanks, your child will get the unique opportunity to be recognized as a Junior Producer, with his or her picture in the playbill!

In addition, you and your family will receive insider access and opportunities to engage in NYCCT’s creative process by interacting with our artists, attending rehearsals and celebrating with us at our opening performance.

A normal day at the park becomes so much more when a young girl gets swept away into four of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairy tales: The Princess and the Pea, The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Nightingale and The Ugly Duckling. The company that brought you Interstellar Cinderella invites you to discover why some fairy tales never get old.
