The Conductors

All aboard the magic train!


Where should we go? Who shall we visit? The conductors are on a search for treasure in this play specifically designed for very young children. Featuring live music and playful audience participation, The Conductors is a silly, joyful, and engaging first theatre experience for children ages 2-6 and their families. Join the conductors as they explore community and connection along the railroad lines! ​

Best enjoyed by children under 6 years old and their families, performances are free and approximately 45 minutes long. Bring your own camp chairs or blanket! Pre-show art activities begin 15 minutes before the performance.
