Friday Funday


Interactive Theatre Shows for Children Ages 4-6! Great for preschools, child care centers, kindergarten classes, and families. Join the Clubhouse at the Playhouse Gang each month as they dramatize a favorite story using their imaginations and the costume pieces and props they find in their Magic Trunk. A new story is presented each month, October through April. Children learn the Clubhouse pledge and secret handshake, and listen for the word of the day.


  • Show times October-April are Fridays, 9:30 AM, 10:45 AM, and 1:30 PM.
  • Tickets are $6 all ages. Groups of 15+ are $5 per ticket.
  • Each audience member must occupy a seat and have a ticket. Individual children (those not with a class or group) must be accompanied by an adult.
  • Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Tickets may be reserved in advance for all shows.
  • Friday Funday is reserved seating. You can choose your seats online.
