The Magic of the Magical Theatre Company


Looking for a professional touring theatre for young audiences in Northeast Ohio? You’ll find what you need in Barberton’s Magical Theatre Company.  This not-for-profit theatre troupe was founded in 1972 to be an educational and entertainment resource for young audiences and families. Their programs introduce young people to the fun that happens on a stage during a performance, provide positive messages through drama, develop creativity, increase communication skills, build teamwork, and offer alternative methods to problem-solving. Magical Theatre Company has been accepted into the Ohio Arts Council's Presenting/ Touring Program, and is a member of the Ohio Arts Presenters Network.
