Join Edgar Allan Crow and the Adventure Clubhouse at The Playhouse crew as they dramatize a favorite story using their imaginations and the costume pieces and props they find in their magic trunk.

Adventure Clubhouse is a creative, participatory story theatre program for children 4-6 years old and their adults. Children learn the Adventure Clubhouse secret handshake, learn the spell to open the magic storybook, and listen for the word of the day. A new story is presented each month!

By visiting the Adventure Clubhouse at The Playhouse, students are encouraged to use their imaginations, read, develop creative thinking skills, and be inspired to learn more about their world. 

Season tickets now on sale. Individual tickets on sale to the public in the fall.
