    Playtime Poppy Children’s Theatre entertains, educates, and engages our community to inspire a lifetime love of theatre for all.

    Whether it be by bringing children to our productions, providing financial support, or volunteering to usher, we invite you to help us share the heart-opening world of theatre with children and families.


    Interested in ushering at Playtime Poppy productions or reading a story to children? Peruse our many volunteer opportunities here.


    As a non-profit arts and educational organization, charitable contributions provide the resources needed to bring our season and programming to life. Join us to inspire a lifetime love of theatre with a donation to Playtime Poppy.

    Corporate Sponsors

    Playtime Poppy Children’s Theatre is thankful for the support of generous corporate sponsors. Our educational programming is made possible not only through their financial contributions, but also through their advocacy and their partnership.

    Community Partners

    Our happy little ear of corn adores her friends. Playtime Poppy is grateful for all of the community partners who provide support and creative collaboration throughout the season.

    Community Impact

    We are thrilled to share how our productions and educational programming have touched the lives of children and families in our community. Our community impact statement for last season can be found here.


    “The arts also contribute to the education of your children by helping them realize the breadth of human experience, see the different ways humans express sentiments and convey meaning, and develop subtle and complex forms of thinking. Although the arts are often thought of as separate subjects, like chemistry and algebra, they are really a collection of skills and thought processes that transcend all areas of human engagement.”

    David A. Sousa, How the Arts Develop the Young Brain
