About the Play Troupe Children's Show
Newly revived in 2013, the Port Washington Play Troupe Children’s Show is dedicated to staging classic stories for children with large inter-generational casts (ages 8 to 80)!
Play Troupe began producing plays for children just three years after its founding. But in 1947, Charlotte Merriman, principal of Main Street School, partnered with the Tangerman family (Elmer, Molly and Judith) to officially found the inter-generational Children’s Show. For generations, it has helped entire families enjoy telling stories together.
Did you know? Hollywood actress Eaddy Mays credits the Children's Show with inspiring her to pursue a career as a professional performer.
