2015 Summer Children's Theater

Celebrating 20 years of FREE entertainment for kids!

Over the past two decades, The Grand has served more than 200,000 children from across the region and we're still going strong! The Grand’s Summer Children’s Theater presents a variety of fun and engaging performances each season with FREE admission – a suggested donation of $5 per person is requested for reserved seating.

This year promises more exciting performances for all ages – with comedy and juggling, music and dancing, unique adventures and larger-than-life characters! The shows are designed to introduce children to the excitement of live entertainment. Most shows are appropriate for children from preschool through middle school, and all of them are perfect for schools, summer camps, daycares, and families. We also offer the chance for local students to audition and perform with Missoula Children’s Theatre.

Running time for all shows is approximately one hour. Tickets are only $5 (suggested donation), and seats may be reserved by making your donation in advance. If you prefer to bring your donation on the day of the show, you will be given the best seats available at the time of your arrival.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations must be received at least 48 hours in advance to reserve seats. After this time, please plan to arrive early on the day of the show for walk-up seating. Doors open 30 minutes before the start of the show.

To make a reservation with your advance donation, please download and complete a reservation form, then return with your payment. For other questions, please contact Nora Reilly at (302)658-7897 ext. 3201.
