Theatre Gift Giving for Little Patrons

By The Children's Theatre

Add that WOW-factor for Academy Gift Certificates & Paper Tickets

Many families are opting to give kids experiences rather than material gifts for the holidays. And it’s wonderful! A trip to the theater with family and friends creates memories that last a lifetime as opposed to a popular toy that will be old news by February. But it’s hard for a set of paper tickets to compete with a Fingerling puppet in a box on Christmas morning. We’ve created a guide to adding a little extra something to give those paper tickets and gift certificates a leg up!

FOR $5: Add a book!

  • Find a paperback copy of Matilda on Amazon or at a used bookstore. Use the Tickets as a bookmark and read the story to prepare for the show!
  • Pro-Tip: TCT has bookmarks for every show available for free! Ask us for one to up the presentation level!

FOR $5 – $15: Add a movie or music

  • Sometimes kids like to know what they’re getting into before they see a show.
  • Get the movie version or soundtrack from upcoming shows to be ready to sing along with your favorites!

FOR $15 +: Add something to help prep for classes

  • TCT Academy Stage Makeup classes require a Ben Nye makeup kit anyway, so get it early and give them a chance to practice beforehand!
  • TCT Academy Dance classes require appropriate footwear. Grab some to wrap with the gift certificate to get the prima ballerina ready for the first day of class!

Luckily, virtual gifts mean you don’t have to go to the store OR wait for them to ship in time for Christmas – talk about a win-win!
