Daytime Performance Series

2018–19 Daytime Performance Series

Chandler Daytime Performance Series (DPS) events are presented especially for schools, students, and families. The general public is also welcome to attend.

The 2018–19 DPS embraces a special theme for youths in grades pre-K through high school: “From the Page to the Stage.” All five of the performances in this season’s series — including two stage plays, a black-light puppet theater masterpiece, a musical theater adaptation, and a kid-friendly opera — originated as classic works of literature.

Please note that all DPS performances take place at 10 am on school-day mornings.
