Core Values:

Theatrical Passion: By providing a home base for artists, Dallas Children's Theater creates powerful live theater to expose children, families, educators and community members to both classic and contemporary works. Dallas Children's Theater dedicates its resources to elevating the field on a local as well as national level.

Commitment to Staff: Dallas Children's Theater is committed to providing staff with wages and benefits that recognize their contribution to the organization's overall success and regularly evaluates these decisions equally alongside other budgetary priorities.

Inspiring Creativity: Dallas Children's Theater believes every child is unique and has something valuable to contribute to society. We help them embrace creativity as an intrinsic part of life, inspiring them to imaginative and rewarding lives.

Innovative Leadership: Dallas Children's Theater uses its art form to present issues facing today's youth and supplements dramatic performances with workshops and events featuring leading experts in education, arts and health to ignite enlightening and powerful conversation.

Reaching Out: Dallas Children's Theater believes all children, families and members in the education community deserve the opportunity to experience live theater and its powerful effects; especially those who might consider cost a barrier.

Arts and Community: Dallas Children's Theater believes that the collective arts are a critical part of where we all live, work and play and is therefore committed to taking on new challenges and collaborating with our peers to use the arts to make a positive impact in our community-both today and in the future.

This was our first time here. The location is great. The building is clean, nice and well maintained. We went with friends who said the doors are usually opened 30 min before the show. The doors didn't open until 15 min before and the lines were very long. It would be much more convenient to have a small cafe or at least some vending machines but we didn't see either.

My school worked there for the first time yesterday to see Frosty and Friends. I had a good time. The kids (Pre-K and Kinder) loved it. It wasn't too crowded and I felt like we were important. I can't wait to go back.

It was a fabulous performance of A Charlie Brown Christmas. Highly recommend. There was a Santa to take pictures with and posters given at the end of the show for the cast to sign.
