For over 40 years Upper Darby Summer Stage has entertained families in suburban Philadelphia, setting the standard across the country for youth theater programs.

Our Children’s Theater productions feature students – who work side-by-side with theater professionals – presenting top-quality Children’s musicals designed to spark the imaginations of young audiences and creating a life-long love of live theater.

Every summer over 700 students work with a team of professional directors, choreographers, musicians, and technicians to produce six hour-long shows Children’s Theater musicals. The students are taught how to engage young theater-goers, sharing their talent with the young audience members.

While you are waiting for the show to start, Summer Stage members interact with your children offering pre-show activities.  Free babysitting is offered in our lobby for those too young to enjoy the show.  After the show, our performers will be available to meet your child for autographs and photos.
