Make sure to take your very small children to Wee Theater...productions for younger kids. I have never been disappointed by a BCT production.

This is a must do with your children. BCT does a fantastic job with all of their productions (Wee Folks and Mainstage). My daughter has grown up with their shows. I highly recommend.

The attendants there are so rude! Instead of respectfully asking or directing, the attendants raised their voices and talked down to my group. I was so disappointed in the way I was ushered in that I couldn't even enjoy the play. What a poor example these people are to the children that attend the plays.

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.
