Touring Children’s Theatre Returns for Its 28th Season!

Children’s Theatre, presented by Jean’s Playhouse, is the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with your children while enjoying some of your favorite childhood stories. Our talented troupe of professional actors travel to Claremont, Concord, Plymouth, Littleton, Intervale, Plainfield, and of course Jean’s Playhouse in Lincoln. This season, running June 24 to August 17, includes a variety of exciting adventurous tales including The Jungle Book, Jack and the Beanstalk, and Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.

Our shows provide fun family entertainment and are geared towards adults and children ages 3 and up. Each show runs approximately 30 minutes and concludes with a meet and greet and autograph signings with cast members.  Children’s Theatre is a perfect outing for the family whether it is something to do on a rainy day or just an excuse to get out of the house. Whatever your reasoning, Children’s Theatre is great family fun!
