Kids Love Musicals!


Kids Love Musicals! encourages participants to explore the major elements of a musical and helps students of all ages – even adults – use its themes to find personal relevance in the art form. Children meet memorable characters who express their deepest emotions through song and dance. It’s a world of imagination, feeling, thinking and creativity.

There are several ways to experience Kids Love Musicals!:

Two-Day Residency A hands-on, two-day classroom residency program that brings the high spirit of the American musical to students in grades K-5.

Special Education Residency (four-week) This is an extended four-week adaption of TMTP’s Two-Day Residency Program for children on the autism spectrum and with other cognitive challenges. This program is provided under a contract with the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

Intergenerational workshop This innovative adaptation of TMTP’s popular school program, participants of all ages connect with each other through the characters and songs of classic American musicals that bridge generations.
