Derby Dinner Playhouse Sets the Stage for Children Derby Dinner Playhouse is celebrating their 33rd season of producing professional musical theatre for young audiences. Each year, over 30,000 children and their families come to DDP to create new memories with us and over 1,000 get into the action themselves by taking classes from our Performing Arts Academy. Whether in the audience or up on stage, every child deserves to have quality arts experiences and Derby Dinner is honored to be a part of that experience. The 2018-19 Children's Musical Theatre season opens in October with THE MUSICAL ADVENTURES OF FLAT STANLEY, followed by A VELVETEEN RABBIT CHRISTMAS for the holidays, THE EMPEROR'S NEW CLOTHES in early 2019, and closing the season is a clever re-telling of the fairy tale SNOW WHITE & THE PRINCE. These four musicals are suitable for ages 3 to 12 and are specially selected for our audiences to ensure that we meet the educational goals of both Indiana and Kentucky. Take a nostalgic trip back in time with classic literary characters jumping off the page and coming to life on stage! Kids get over 50% off the regular ticket price when you subscribe to all four shows — that equals two free shows for your child! Breakfast and lunch performances are available, both featuring a kid-friendly buffet. Call 812-288-8281 for more information or visit derbydinner. com/children's-shows/ and become a part of the Derby Dinner Playhouse family today!
