Experience the Best Children's Theater in Los Angeles!



There’s nothing quite like experiencing the sights, sounds and story of a live theater production. But it’s not exactly a family friendly activity. How can you expect your kids to sit still and quietly watch a play or musical for hours at a time?


Creating Arts, a Santa Monica based theater, offers a great solution to getting your little ones excited about plays and musicals. They provide shows specially designed for kids! Creating Arts offers shows that accommodate young minds with their shortened length and interaction opportunities.

Specialty Shows Categories

From toddlers to 7 year olds,  all ranges of children can expect to be entertained by one of Creating Arts several specialty show categories.


For Toddlers (5 and younger) – Twinkle Theater 

Twinkle theater productions are perfect for infants and toddlers. These 30 minute shows don’t feature any scary villains or intimidating costumes.


For Kids (3 and older) – Mini Musical 

The mini musical is the Creating Arts signature production. For 1 hour your child will boo the villain, cheer for the hero, and sing along with catchy musical numbers.


Ford Kids (3 and older) – Pint Size Play

Another engaging experience for kids, the pint size play offers the same interaction opportunity as the mini musical but it’s a regular play rather than a musical event.


Family Show (Kids 7 and Older) – Jr. Broadway

Jr. Broadway shows are 1 hour and 30 minutes and offer a great intermediate step between more juvenile productions and full fledged stage productions.
