🎭 Local Youth Theater & Performing Arts Productions

By Kyrie Collins, Highlands Ranch-Parker-Castle Rock-Lone Tree Publisher September 13, 2021

Live theater is a passion my husband and I have shared through our entire courtship and marriage, and it is now something we enjoy experiencing with our children too!

By introducing them to live performances at a very young age, we have been able to impart our appreciation for the performing arts and create wonderful family memories as well.

School and youth theater productions are one of the best sources for age-appropriate shows at an affordable price. Here is the lineup of fabulous events, coming to a stage near you!

SYNOPSIS: Rebellion is high in Matilda JR., a gleefully witty ode to the anarchy of childhood and the power of imagination. Based on Roald Dahl's famous novel, this story of a girl who dreams of a better life and the children she inspires will have audiences rooting for the "revolting children" who are out to teach the grown-ups a lesson. All Ages.
