Stage Productions at SteppingStone Theatre

The Theatre produces family-friendly stage performances throughout the year. Their productions tend to be shows that promote diversity, cultural awareness and tolerance. In the past, I have found their plays a bit too challenging for younger children, and have chosen to take my middle grader. However, they added some special productions geared toward smaller children this year.

SteppingStone Theatre 2018-2019 Season:

Pay-What-You-Are-Able Performances

SteppingStone offers a Pay-What-You-Are-Able Performance for most performances. The suggested minimum is $5, but they want people to feel welcome no matter what price they feel able to pay. These tickets are first come, first serve and it is recommended that audience members arrive 30-45 minutes ahead. However, I've made this my rule of thumb, and sometimes I've sat in a mostly empty theatre until 10-15 minutes before the start time. If you are running late, and feeling adventurous, show up a little later and see what happens.
