Welcome To The Inaugural Season of Youth and Family Programming at Pasadena Playhouse!


We can’t keep this secret any longer! It’s official – we’re launching our inaugural season of Youth and Family Programming which will expand our audience to include the youngest members of the community to build the next generation of theatergoers and theatermakers.

Our inaugural season will include two professional productions for younger audiences and their families including the world premiere of Grumpy Monkey, The Musical, commissioned by the Playhouse and adapted from the New York Times bestseller, Grumpy Monkey by Suzanne and Max Lang, and Wheels on the Bus, an unforgettable grownup-and-me journey filled to the brim with immersive fun for everyone.

Other youth and family events will include the first (of what we hope are many) Baby Raves and Holiday Groove: A Family Dance Workshop led by Tony-Nominee Sam Pinkleton (Head Over Heels, Pasadena Playhouse Holiday Spectacular). In addition, we’re committing to creating unforgettable after-school and summer programming with the formation of the Playhouse Players, where 7 – 12 year olds will have the chance to create and perform in musical theater productions, Musical Theater Boot Camp geared toward talent development for 13 – 17 year olds, and the formation of a new professional development program, Playhouse Teen Alliance. And as if that’s not enough, we’ll also be presenting Amal Walks Across America on Nov 1 at 5 PM at Pasadena City Hall  in partnership with Deaf West Theatre, Armory Center for the Arts, and The City of Pasadena.

Pasadena Playhouse’s Youth & Family Programming would not be possible without the generous support of The Fitzberg Foundation, the Helen and Will Webster Foundation, and Apriem Advisors. This project is also funded in part by a grant from Pasadena Community Foundation, with additional support provided by Dwight Stuart Youth Fund and the Michael J. Connell Foundation.
