What We Do

Theatre for Young Audiences (TYA)

Performances designed for ages 4 and up, but enjoyed by audiences of all ages. Our TYA explores themes relevant to our community through verbal, movement-based, and musical storytelling. Visit our SHOWS page for upcoming TYA  mainstage performances.

Theatre for the Very Young (TVY)

Performances crafted for babies and toddlers ages 0-5 and their caregivers. TVY is visually stimulating, largely non-verbal, and often includes live music, lights, hands-on props, puppetry, and dance. Visit our SHOWS page for upcoming TVY mainstage performances.

Performance-Based Field Trips

School groups visiting Kaleideum can request the add-on of a 30-minute play performed for their class. Performances are available for PreK through 3rd grade groups, and meet a variety of NCES and Common Core State Standards. READ MORE

Peppercorn Theatre was founded in 2010 as a vehicle for the creation, development, and professional production of new plays for family audiences in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. In 2014, Peppercorn joined the Children’s Museum of Winston-Salem, which later merged with SciWorks to become Kaleideum.

To date, Peppercorn has produced 28 original plays in collaboration with organizations such as the Reynolda House Museum of American Art, Krankies Coffee, Delta Arts Center, and Hanesbrands Theatre. Read about Peppercorn’s previous seasons here.
