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
