This is one of the most creative and entertaining children's theaters that I've ever frequented. Take your kid or a grandkid or a neighbor's kid. You will not be disappointed.

We went to the afternoon performance of the BFG. The theatre is nice and the show is very well done. We had lunch before the show and there were many great restaurant options in the area as well.

I am so happy to live in an area with such a wide range of activities and entertainment for kids. I have taken my kids (age 8 and 7) to 3 performances and have always been impressed by the caliber of the acting, the beautiful and creative costumes, and the music. The one area for improvement that I would suggest... More

My son and I have attended many plays at Imagination Stage and have enjoyed every one. He is 11 now, outside the suggested age range, but he loves theater and still enjoys the shows very much. We pay attention to the entire experience, included the incredibly creative costuming, the music, the lines of dialogue and small gestures geared to older... More

This children's theatre is nothing short of awesome. There is no such thing as a bad seat. Parking was easy. The performance was marvelous. The kiddos are thrilled each and every show.

The whole Imagination Stage experience is so excellent, so well done, so needed and really worthwhile to visit, to support, to recommend. Performances I have seen there over the years were all just brilliantly delivered and totally enjoyable.

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
