Carousel Theatre for Young People productions have specific audience age restrictions to ensure the enjoyment of all our patrons. We tailor each of our productions to specific age groups. Children younger than the ages listed below require specifically designed productions that match their development.

We encourage you to bring your students to our productions when they can benefit most from the experience. Carousel Theatre for Young People’s No Babes in Arms policy, and age policies are non-negotiable. We appreciate your understanding in this.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Other Eric Carle Favourites – PreK – Grade 2 (Children must be at least 3 years of age)
James and the Giant Peach – Grade 2+
Shakespearean Rhapsody – - PreK – Grade 2 (Children must be at least 3 years of age, recommended to be 4 years)

Children younger than the ages listed are not permitted in the theatre because they may become frightened or disruptive. This is unfair to older students, teachers and families who have purchased tickets and are looking forward to being immersed in the theatrical experience.
