Thanks to the generous support of the Steele Foundation, Childsplay is able to provide a Storybook Preview performance in conjunction with every production at the Tempe Center for the Arts. The Childsplay Storybook Preview is a special discounted ticket price offered for the first public performance of each production. Tickets to this preview performance are offered for $12 (more than a 50% discount) and each family attending the performance receives a book for their personal libraries. The book is based on a theme or play from Childsplay's season. Accordingly, families who attend the Storybook Previews can share both a family theatre experience and a shared reading and learning experience. To date more than 2,500 books have been distributed to more than 10,000 families in Arizona.
Please Note: The storybook preview performance is a preview performance and may not contain all elements of a regular performance, including actor Q&A, Questions for the Ride Home, and the Childsplay 360º Degree Theatre Activities in the lobby. Additionally, a Childsplay preview performance allows for Directors and Designers to continue making notes and changes to the show -- therefore, the play you see at a preview performance may not be in it's final stage of creation.
