Arts for Young Audiences + Family Fun Days

Arts for Young Audiences is an important part of our family programming at the Atlas. Shows are dramatically unique. Each season,  Atlas features programming presented by DC area organizations specializing in programming for young people including theater, music,  puppetry, and dance. Generally, performances are designed for children ages 2-10 and are specified for each show. All patrons age 1 and above require a ticket. Family Fun Days are special programs offered during our annual Intersections Festival.

In this interactive play, the audience becomes part of the story through multi-sensory activities. Join us as we all try to reach beyond the stars.
