Childsplay Kid Reporters

About The Childsplay Kid Reporter Program

A Childsplay Kid Reporter will be invited to a Childsplay performance, where they will get an exclusive backstage tour and interview with cast members. Kid Reporters will then create a video review that will be published on all of our social media platforms!


Each Kid Reporter will get the VIP experience at the theatre that includes:

  • Free seats to a Childsplay performance for the reporter and their family
  • An interview with members of the cast backstage
  • An exclusive backstage tour with the stage manager
  • A special "Press Pass" to wear and have as a keepsake, which includes their photo
  • Exclusive tour of Childsplay's Campus for Imagination and Wonder (our prop and costume shops included!) 


For the 2019-20 Season, Childsplay is searching for Kid Reporters for:

  • The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane
  • Chato's Kitchen
  • Ella Enchanted: The Musical
  • Elephant and Piggie's "We Are in a Play!"
  • Suzette Who Set to Sea


Kid Reporters



The Kid Reporter will need to come to the show prepared with questions. These questions can be about the play, the performers, and anything else they want to know! Childsplay will help with these by providing some basic questions they can choose to use during the interview. (And we encourage mom, dad, grandma, grandpa, teachers or anyone else to help!) After the show, the Kid Reporter will go backstage for their exclusive interview with the cast. The Kid Reporter will have one week to submit their video review. (Parent or Guardian will be required to sign a video waiver).
