PlayTime - FREE participatory theatre for children


PlayTime presents The Mitten - A virtual, interactive experience for young children!

Welcome to the (virtual) Clubhouse! Play along with the PlayTime troupe as we discover the word of the day, learn the secret Clubhouse password, and act out our story - The Mitten! Become one of our animal friends in this classic Ukrainian winter tale about a magical night in the forest where a lost mitten grows and grows!
PlayTime is MHT’s free, interactive theatre experience especially geared towards ages 3-6 and their families. Usually performed in MHT’s Studio Theatre or outdoor courtyard space - PlayTime has adapted to this unusual time by offering this show virtually!

To play along with the story - please have a blanket, sheet or large towel nearby. You’ll be told how to use it!
