Coterie Theatre

Do your kids enjoy the theater?  Or maybe they haven't yet seen a live performance?  Take them to the Coterie, located in Crown Center, for a great experience.  The Coterie Theatre was voted one of the "5 Best Kids Theaters" by Time Magazine.  Outstanding shows for the preteen set include:

Before the Show:

  • Have your child read the book before seeing a play.
  • Seating is first come, first serve - so arrive early. 
  • Stop at thebathroom before hitting your seats - especially if your kids want a floor seat.
  • Review theater etiquette - remind kids to stay seated, stay out of the aisles, etc.  The Coterie has a great information page.
