All the world's indeed a stage -- at least it is for the professional adult performers who present fully staged musicals in this historic theater. Classic stories and new musical works are brought to life through the Theatre for Young Audiences, offering a cultural and entertaining experience for the whole family. The newest production, No Dogs Allowed, is based on the book of the same name by Sonia Marcano, better known to most as "Maria" of Sesame Street. Performances will take place Saturdays at 2 p.m. from June 15 through July 29.
Through partnerships with Miami-Dade Public Schools, Actors' Playhouse also provides educational resources for teachers and activities for children and their families. Summer camp programs and a Theater Conservatory are also offered.
