For Kids & Families

We believe that teaching children creativity, teamwork, and empathy through theater helps them become engaged citizens.

A.R.T. Kids Company

Join in the funnest, wackadoodle-est,
Saturdays in Cambridge!

A.R.T. Kids Company, Jr. is our classic creative playmaking program for students ages 5-7. Each week, we start with a children’s storybook centered around a theme—which could be anything from under the sea to American folk tales—and use improv games and creative play techniques to act out the story LIVE!

A.R.T. Kids Company is an advanced ensemble theater program for students ages 8-10 with strong reading, writing, and teamwork skills; over the course of the semester, we will be creating a new play inspired by an upcoming A.R.T. production. The students will serve as writers AND performers for a world premiere workshop performance (would we have it any other way?)!

A.R.T. Kids Company Jamboree is our weeklong summer program offered for both of our age groups. Incorporating all aspects of our semester-long programs, students explore a theme that unites STEM learning with creative play.

School-year classes meet Saturdays for eight weeks at the Loeb Drama Center, 64 Brattle St., Harvard Square and culminate in an open class, when friends and family gather on the final day for a presentation of the students’ work (with snacks, of course). Summer Kids Company Jamboree classes meet for three hours each day for one week.
