Theatre for the Very Young

Theatre for the Very Young

Stages Theatre Company is quickly becoming a national leader in producing Theatre for the Very Young, a genre of theatre that has been popular in Europe and Australia for more than 25 years.

In this participatory, multi-sensory theatre genre for children age 18-months to 4 years and their caregivers, kids become an integral part of telling the story and are fully engaged throughout the show by professional adult actors and youth actors.

Launched in 2014 with our groundbreaking production of The Dandelion Seed, our Theatre for the Very Young productions have been met with an outpouring of interest, and are raising the bar in providing theatre experiences for the youngest of audiences.


As a leader in producing Theatre for the Very Young, we are proud of the productions we’ve created. Watch our list of original pieces for our youngest audiences grow below.

  • 2014 – The Dandelion Seed
  • 2016 – Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
  • 2017 – Swimmy
  • 2018 – On The Railroad

It was at that performance that I saw my daughter step out of babyhood and into the world.
