Performances for all Ages

Have a budding thespian in the house or looking to take a digital break and enjoy live entertainment?

If you’re like me, you’re excited to take in one of the many amazing plays and performances in the greater Kalamazoo area with your kids and support the local arts.

There’s something for every age and budget in this list. You’ll want to read the synopsis to determine if a performance is appropriate for the age of your child before buying tickets.

Check our Event Calendar for more information about tickets pricing and show times.
