There is nothing better than seeing a Theatre full of excited children jostling to their seats awaiting the magic that is about to unfold on stage.  It's one thing to read a book, it's another thing to see the story performed live right before your eyes.

Dubbo Regional Theatre works side-by-side with educators to offer a diverse education program of quality children's theatre productions for all stages of learning and development.
