Venture Description

Philly Children’s Theatre is a touring Theatre for Young Audiences committed to expanding access to the arts for Philadelphia children. We focus on access and inclusion educationally, financially, and geographically. PCT has a specific focus on theatre for children with disabilities and creates original sensory theatre shows. Additionally, all shows are offered on a pay-what-you-can rate and toured around to our community partners to eliminate any financial or travel barrier. The shows are performed by adults and created with child input through theatre, dance, and art workshops with our various community partnerships.
