the pied piper children's theatre

With your help, the show will go on.

For over twenty years, Pied Piper Children’s Theater has brought the power and magic of live performance to Inwood and the Upper Manhattan community. Young people from ages 5 to 18 have come together to create plays both new and classic and along the way, have learned so much about the art of theatre, the world around them, and most importantly, themselves.  

 This Giving Tuesday, we ask for your help. Your generous donation will support the young artists who benefit so much from our various programs, and will ensure that this revered cornerstone of the community continues to thrive!

  Trickster Tales 

In this Zoom workshop, children ages 5-13 will become Play Makers, collaborating to create a culminating performance in January. The focus will be on the process of theatre creation rather than a focus on performance. Participants will be led through improvisation and drama games to retell traditional folk tales and poems through their own artistic voice. They will also help to create their own costumes, props, and backdrops! 

I think it's incredible that I have the luck of living in a neighborhood where they have a theatre and I can perform in it.

Leo, age 10

I've leaned a lot, not just as a performer but as a person. I don't think I'd be the person I am today without it.

Tamara, age 15

One word that makes me think of Pied Piper is... happiness.

Grover, age 7

Colleen has created a Musical Theatre Intro class that you can access here. This 35-minute class takes you through a typical musical theatre vocal warm-up, stretches, dance warm-up, and even some fun tongue twisters and other facial and speech exercises. Guest appearances by some of our PPCT teen company members, as well as our children's show director and musical director.
