Bring the entire family to the Playhouse!
Westport Country Playhouse loves welcoming families to our campus, with both our children-friendly
Family Festivities performances and our
Together at the Table
program during the Season.
Our Family Festivities Series aims to make live theater accessible to our youngest audience members and
provides the perfect entertainment for children, parents and grandparents to share together.
We select shows that encourage children’s imaginations to come alive with stage presentations of new stories and old
favorites, many drawn from classic works of literature. Each show is preceded by lively children’s activities in the Sheffer
Rehearsal Barn. Taught by professional artists and supported by Playhouse staff, the pre-show activities are designed to
reflect an aspect of the production in order to further enrich each child’s experience. For families who want to bring a piece
of the experience home, we offer the books and stories that our Family Festivity shows draw upon at our lobby bookstore.
Together at the Table is designed to make professional theater more accessible to families and to promote a lifelong
interest in our work. For just $10 per ticket, families are able to come to the Playhouse, share a family-style dinner, and
attend a play. With this unique program, live theater is an affordable option for family entertainment.
