Playhouse Mobile Unit
We believe theater can happen anywhere and should be accessible to all.
Our new initiative is the Playhouse Mobile Unit. Specifically designed to be adaptable and accommodate any space, the Playhouse Mobile Unit is a fully staged play that will travel to you for a live theatrical performance, grades 5 – 9. Our tour begins January 2023 with the world premiere of Scaredy Kat Presents, by Janine Sobeck Knighton.
