Childrens theater is thriving in Montgomery County and this is one of the best. The kids always love it. Well worth the trip.

This is a children's theater with great programming from toddlers to pre-teens. Parking is easy next door. Most shows are great with a few mishaps here and there. I love their little gift shop full of costumes. Overall, a very enjoyable experience for children and parents alike!

We have been to Imagination Stage twice before. This is wonderful theatre for very young children full of intrigue to stretch their imagination. My grandson is enraptured by the performance especially those parts when the children are invited to participate. The actors are so professional in reaching out to the children. I recommend families to visit and enjoy this piece... More

We love Imagination Stage. My daughter and I used to get season tickets to their performance season and make a point of reading the book together in advance of the play. It is a great mother-daughter treat. Then my son joined us as he got older. The plays are outstanding, the actors are professionals and it is wonderful exposure to... More

What a great place to take kids. From performances to food imagination stage has it covered. The only caveat is whether they will be sold out or not but a wonderful place.

We often take our grandchildren. They do a great job! We recently saw Peter Pan. We especially like that the actors come out and talk to the kids

The performances are aimed at 4-10 year olds. Several small performance space, and the kids are quite close to the action. The actors often come out to meet the audience afterwards.

My wife and I recently took our 7 yr old granddaughter to see Peter Pan and Wendy at Imagination Stage and were blown away by the professionalism of the terrific singers, actors, sets, lighting, sound, costumes, the works. It was very well done and the interaction between the actors and the audience was a big hit with the children there... More

Imagination Stage goes out of their way to accomodate infants to grade school children. The shows are interactive, well rehearsed, and well done. We have gone here for years and every show is a little different and overall excelent.
