They have nice children's performances . Children's programs and performances for your 2-8 year old. Check out their schedule and you might be surprised at how often they have interesting performances.

BIRMINGHAM CHILDREN'S THEATRE produces wonderful plays for children and adults who cherish memories of their own childhood. Beautifully staged and with amazing costumes, seeing one of their productions is a joy for everyone. You will not be disappointed.

Children who love plays and live action need to visit here. The plays are wonderful and professionally presented. The theatre is located in the Birmingham Jefferson Civic Center Complex. Check their website for upcoming productions.

I attended a play with my child's kindergarten class. The play was adorable! The actors were talented and my son LOVED the puppets. Obviously this was a "kid friendly" attraction and even (most) toddlers would be entertained by the play we attended ("Christmas Shoes").

This isn't a must see but if you want to pass some time it's okay, pick a good play if you want a more up beat show to keep the kids engaged.

My children have taken workshops here and they have numerous shows they perform throughout the year. A small, quaint atmosphere.
