Theater for Young Audiences

Our Theater for Young Audiences program provides high-quality, professional theater experiences for schools and families. There is power in live theater, and we believe everyone should have the chance to experience it, no matter their age!

Since 2014, we have provided high-quality, standards-based curriculum from our stage,
 reaching 10,000 students in and around San Gabriel Valley. We hope to launch a touring program in hopes of reaching even more kids.
We are a proud partner organization of Pasadena Unified School District's Open Stage program.

We hope to launch our previously postponed TYA production of In the Garden of the Selfish Giant in the near future.


“I wanted to let you know how much we loved the play! The Sierra Madre Playhouse is such a cozy, comfortable, and historic venue, we would love to come back again."  – 3rd grade teacher, Longley Way Elementary, Arcadia


“My colleague and I adored our time at the playhouse today! It is by far the best theater field trip we have had the opportunity to enjoy. We look forward to a yearly visit.” – 2nd grade teacher, Camino Grove Elementary, Arcadia


“We had a wonderful time visiting the theater yesterday! It was a lovely first-time experience for many of our students." – 1st grade teacher, Mountain Avenue Elementary, Glendale
