Theater Party

If your child is “dramatic”, consider a theatre party. Take guests to see a play put on by a local children’s theater or create a theater at your home with the guests performing a play or puppet show for their parents. Some children’s entertainers will bring costumes, props, and scripts and coach children to perform a play.

Party Invitations
Design invitations like a play program (with play title, actors, etc.) or with characters from play children will see or perform. Birthday Extravaganza now starring “your child’s name”. Invite parents back at end of party to watch children perform their play.

Party Decorations
Decorate with a theater sign (Elm Street Theater now performing “title of play”), theater props and costumes.

Games & Activities
Have guests act out a play or perform jokes & riddles. Play musical theater chairs. If budget permits, hire a puppeteer to put on a show.

Fun Arts & Crafts
Make paper hats and masks. Do face painting. Paint and decorate a theater set.

Party Refreshments
Serve popcorn, cookies and sparkling apple cider.

Party Favors
Fill favor bags with sidewalk chalk, stickers and blowing bubbles.
