Northbrook Theatre for Young Audiences logoNorthbrook Theatre for Young Audiences is a professional theatre company dedicated to presenting the highest quality shows to and for young people and family audiences. We are one of a very few theatres in the Midwest operating under a Theatre For Young Audiences Agreement (TYA) with Actors’ Equity Association, the national union of Actors and Stage Managers.

“Professional theatre for children…performed with kids in mind!”

Performances run approximately one hour and are packed with singing, dancing, acting and thrills. Our intimate 268-seat theatre, located at 3323 Walters Avenue in Northbrook, is the perfect setting to share live theatre with children. Audiences of all ages can enjoy our performances. We also offer group discounts, lunch/theatre packages, birthday party packages and weekday performances for schools and similar groups, which include curtain talks and backstage theatre tours.
