The Kathy & Ken Bernhardt Theatre for the Very Young

What is Theatre for the Very Young?

  • A professional performance for children ages 05 years old and their grown-ups
  • An artistic experience that overcomes age and developmental barriers, language, and developmental barriers, expanding the consciousness of very young audience members and integrating bi-lingual elements into each show.
  • A way for focus and creative thinking to be nurtured, or even discovered for the first time!
  • A cultural experience for the very young on their own terms
  • An inventive approach to making quality art experiences
  • A fun and inspiring experience for both children and their parents

"Theatre for the Very Young engages both parents and their pre-school children in creative experiences. The fourth wall is dissolved as young ones willingly become a part of the experience."

—Rosemary Newcott, director

We've officially hit summer here in Atlanta, and while temperatures are rising outside, we're staging the hottest dance party inside: The Dancing Granny. But with all there is to do this season, why should you grab the kids and come see the show?

A little known fact about the Alliance?
"We are the largest producing theatre in Georgia and if you break out our education department and its shows, that would be the second."

What is your hope for the future?
"For myself, I want to be happy. Motivation to succeed. For humanity, I wish for there to be more understanding, without disregard or hate."
