Evanston Children's Theatre


Children age 8 through eighth grade perform in two productions per year. All performances are held at the Levy Center, 300 Dodge Avenue. 

Recent productions include the spring play The Phantom Tollbooth by Susan Nanus based on the book by Norton Juster, produced by special arrangement with Samuel French. 



Beauty is in the eye of the ogre in Shrek The Musical JR., based on the Oscar-winning DreamWorks Animation film, book by William Steig and the fantastic Broadway musical with music by Jeanine Tesori and book and lyrics by David Lindsay-Abaire. It’s a “big bright beautiful world” as everyone’s favorite ogre, Shrek, leads a cast of fairytale misfits on an adventure to rescue a princess and find true acceptance. Part romance and part twisted fairy tale, Shrek JR. is an irreverently fun show with a powerful message for the whole family.
