Schwartz Center for the Arts
The Children's Theatre would also like to express our gratitude to The Schwartz Center for the Arts located on the corner of State Street and North Street in Dover Delaware. The Schwartz Center has history in Dover going back to 1904. Through a tremendous amount of effort it was reopened in 2001 as The Schwartz Center and is central Delaware's Premier Center for the Arts! In December 2004 The Children's Theatre had the honor of performing in The Schwartz Center before a sell out crowd. Since then, The Children's Theatre Inc. has partnered with The Schwartz Center for the Arts; Thus, we enjoy profit-sharing with them during each of our season's productions.
