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.

77th Anniversary Season: Spring 2016magicbook

Sacramento Children’s Theater presents The Tale Spinner. One rainy evening, two children discover a big, beautiful leather-bound book—a book they’ve never seen before—called The Tale Spinner. As the children open to the first page, the Tale Spinner herself appears. Through three tales of inter-planetary comedy, pirate derring-do and long-lost love, the Tale Spinner not only fascinates and entertains the children but opens their eyes to a magical world found only in books.

Performance Time: 10 AM
Location: Luther Burbank High School, 3500 Florin Road, Sacramento
Cost: Free. Reservations are required.
