We are not currently booking Kids4Kids performances for the 2014-2015 school year.


Kids4Kids is a program where kids perform plays for kids at your school! We arrive at your school, set up minimal props and set, then perform 45-minute productions for your students. Our kid cast is uniquely positioned to inspire your student audiences.

What to Expect:

Prior to arriving, we mail out study guides about the show, supplemented by a list of hands-on activities for teachers to do with their classes prior to our arrival. On the day of the performance, Kids4Kids arrives 45 minutes before show time. We set up our technical elements with no need for supervision. The show runs 45 minutes, designed to fit comfortably within most class periods. Following the performances, our staff will lead a 10-minute panel discussion with the actors and your students.

How to Book a Show:

For more information and/or to book one of our shows at your school, please contact Carol Dempsey, our Group Sales Coordinator, at 781.279.7885 x105 or email
