Festival of the Kid

This one-of-a-kind play festival uses the top 17 winning entries from Stage West's annual Neighborhood Play Contest and stages them during this 3-day festival. Plays are cast using 30-40 teens from the North Central Texas area (ages 13-19). They are then professionally produced using seasoned designers, directors, and teen actors. Come see the results!

The 2017 Festival of the Kid will take place on the evenings of May 8th, 9th, and 10th. Two performances each evening (6:30pm and 8:15pm.)

Tickets are $12 for adults and $8 for ages 12-19. Under 12 strongly not recommended. For tickets call box office: 817.784.9378, or reserve online here.
