To educate, entertain and engage audiences of all ages through professional theatrical productions and arts education programming.


In 1924, the Junior League of Cincinnati developed a plan to introduce children in Cincinnati to the magic of theater. They created the Junior League Players, now known as The Childrens Theatre of Cincinnati. The Childrens Theatre was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1947 and over the years evolved into a professional theater company. In 1993, the Board of The Childrens Theatre hired Jack Louiso as Artistic Director, and under his leadership The Childrens Theatre rose to new levels of professionalism, increasing its audience to serve nearly 200,000 children, families and schools each season primarily across Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. Jack retired in May of 2011, handing over the reins to renowned opera singer and arts educator Angela Powell Walker.
