About Columbia Children's Theatre

Our Mission Statement
Columbia Children's Theatre was founded to serve a need in the Midlands and surrounding areas of Columbia for professional live theatre for young audiences. Each of our productions features professional directors, actors, writers and designers all focused on delivering a theatre experience for the entire family. We are dedicated to providing programming that enriches the lives of audiences with the wonders and magic of live theatre which speaks across cultural, ethnic and generational boundaries and gives children memories that will last long after the curtain falls.

About Our Programs
Columbia Children's Theatre programming mission is two-fold. We offer four fully-produced musicals each year targeted to families and young audiences that will include matinee and evening performances.

Secondly, we provide a training ground in theatre arts through our KidStage series. KidStage is an intensive, production-oriented "boot camp" designed to give young performers the opportunity to rehearse and perform in productions for live audiences. Instruction will include training in acting, singing, musical theatre, dance and movement by highly qualified master-teachers and culminate in a live performance.
