Sacramento Children’s Theater

Sacramento Children’s Theater is the longest-running community theater program in our region, spanning more than 75 years.  The program has entertained and taught countless children with lively and educational musical theater productions. For many children, this is the first and sometimes only live theater that they will experience.

Since the 1940s, the Junior League of Sacramento has been dedicated to providing this free program to over 18,000 local elementary school children, a tradition that Fairytale Town is happy to continue and make possible for the community. Fairytale Town works with community members who serve as playwrights, actors, backstage helpers, costume sewers, prop/scenery painters, and logistics coordinators in the quest to produce a quality production.

Performances are free to local school groups for students in Pre-Kindergarten through third grade. Advance reservations are required.

78th Anniversary Season: Spring 2017

littlebirdartSacramento Children’s Theater presents Little Bird. In this heartwarming story, Little Bird befriends a Kitten, Bird, Dog and Cow while searching for his lost mother. During their journey, each friend gives up his most prized possession to help Little Bird, and by doing so, each learns that it is people, not things, that make us truly rich. The caring attitudes exhibited among the animals reinforce the themes of putting others before oneself and the importance of friendship and family. All of this is accomplished with goofy antics, lots of singing, and plenty of silliness!

Performance Dates: Tuesday – Friday, January 31 – February 24, 2017
Performance Time: 10 AM
Location: Luther Burbank High School, 3500 Florin Road, Sacramento
