Yale Children’s Theater

Mission: 

Yale Children’s Theater, a Dwight Hall community service group, is a group of Yale students devoted to teaching, entertaining, and engaging kids with the dramatic arts. We produce four student-written shows a year, offer drama workshops for local kids, and perform throughout the greater New Haven community.

Summary of Activities: 

Yale’s Children Theater will be putting on two on-campus productions (original plays written and performed by Yale students for local children) and offering five separate weekly theater workshops for K-8th grade students for a span of eight weeks. Productions and workshops will take place in Dwight Hall. Our workshops serve ~75 students every week, and each production has an audience of 100 or more children and parents. In addition to the performances on Yale’s campus, we will be traveling to local elementary schools to perform for students and classrooms who are otherwise unable to see the show.
