"For Kids, By Kids!"
Founded in 1951, Davenport Junior Theatre is the second oldest children's theatre in America. Click here to learn more about our history.
We offer a huge variety of programming opportunities for children ages 3-18. Our theatre classes cover all aspects of theatre, and are led by professional artists. Theatre programming includes our new Spectrum Theatre program for kids dealing with difficulties in expression or communication.
Our School of Dance features classes in various genres. In addition to regular classes, we also offer an array of week-long spring and summer camps.
The other main element of DJT is our Mainstage program. DJT presents three to four public Mainstage shows annually, with a cast and crew of kids led by professional theatre artists.
Whether you are interested in signing up or coming to a performance, we have something for the entire family. Join us!
