Children’s Playshop
Since its inception in 1994, the JMU Children'’s Playshop has been entertaining families from across the Shenandoah Valley with quality family theatre. It became a summer tradition for families to see young professional actors perform fairy tales, sing family friendly musicals, and bring contemporary children’s literature magically come to life. That tradition has now carried over to the Forbes Center for the Performing Arts, where student performers and audiences have the opportunity to come together in the highly flexible Studio Theatre.

Ticket prices: $8.50–$9.50. General Admission Seating. Advance tickets can be purchased online, by phone or in person at the box office (Mon.–Fri., 10 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and one hour prior to performance). Cash, checks, major credit cards, JACards accepted.
