During select Sunday matinee performances, parents and grandparents attending the show are invited to bring their kids along to the T2 Kids' Club, a series of fun and creative classes led by TheatreSquared's professional teaching artists at Nadine Baum Studios.
Each Kids' Club class is packed with hands-on theatre activities, modeled after a real play production process. Parents who sign on for the full season — by purchasing a Kids' Club Season Pass along with their subscription — will enroll their child in a six-class track including playwriting, acting, "behind the scenes," and finally a performance created entirely by kids!
Please note that, as a companion offering to our regular performances, Kids' Club passes are only available to parents or guardians attending the show on the same date.
When you call to reserve your parent subscription and Kids' Club Pass, let the Box Office agent know which series of dates you prefer. As a T2 subscriber, if conflicts arise, you may exchange at no charge into any other Sunday Kids’ Club performance up to 24 hours in advance of your reservation.
SECOND SUNDAY — 2 p.m.
Sep 3 / Oct 22 / Dec 10 / Feb 4 / March 25 / May 13

2017/18 Kids Club Lineup
Your Kids Study: Playwriting
Students will be led through fun theatre games like “story board” and “tableau” to introduce the concepts of plot, character and conflict. Students will then work in small groups to create a dramatic adaptation of a short story.
You Watch: Fun Home
A five-time Tony Award-winner and one of the most significant new musicals of the 21st century. Fun Home is a refreshingly honest, cathartic, and wholly original musical about seeing your parents through grown-up eyes.
Your Kids Study: Acting
Students will be led through improvisational games and hands-on acting exercises that will encourage confident performances onstage, using their imagination to bring their ideas to life in a creative way.
You Watch: The Champion
Based on untold true events. It’s 1962 and music legend Nina Simone is holed up in a snowstorm in a greasy spoon somewhere in North Carolina, waiting for the trains to start running.
Your Kids Study: Scenery Design
In this hands-on session, students will learn about the process of designing sets and hand properties for a theatrical production.
Kids will create an environment and a properties design based on a short story!
You Watch: It's a Wonderful Life
It’s Christmas Eve, 1946, and five actors have gathered in WFMK Studio A for a live radio broadcast, ready to take on dozens of characters and recreate Bedford Falls.
You Watch: The Humans
The most acclaimed and awarded American play in recent memory will have its first independent production in Northwest Arkansas following its record-breaking Broadway run. After a sleepless night, Mr. Blake brings his family from Pennsylvania to his daughter’s new apartment to celebrate Thanksgiving. As darkness falls outside the ramshackle pre-war duplex, mysterious things start to go bump in the night, secrets are revealed, and family tensions reach a boiling point.
Your Kids Study: Costume Design
Students will learn about the process of designing costumes and makeup for a theatrical production. They will create character costumes based on a short story and explore how stage make-up can be used to create a perfect look for a character!
Your Children Study: Sound Design
Students will learn about creating sound effects and musical elements that come together to help build the world of the play. Students will create simple instruments and create a sound foley.
You Watch: Vietgone
Fresh from its acclaimed 2017 New York debut — and written by an Arkansas native — Vietgone presents a fresh theatrical take on one real family’s history. It’s the classic boy meets girl – except this boy and girl are refugees from the Vietnam War.
Your Children Study: Play in a Day
In this session, all of the skills from the previous sessions will come together as the students rehearse and perform a short play! Parents are invited to the short showcase immediately following the T2 show.
You Watch: The Hound of the Baskervilles
Packed full of verbal and visual ingenuity and abundant comedy, this sublimely funny reimagining of the most celebrated Sherlock Holmes mystery is a hyper-theatrical tour de force.
