Fairfield County's Premier Children's Theatre
Since 1987, Crystal Theatre has been Fairfield County’s leading performing arts center for children. Our rehearsal spaces are located in the Ben Franklin Community Center in historic South Norwalk, CT. We have programs available for children of all ages, from those as young as four years old to those in their senior year of high school. Our mission is to help every motivated student become a better performer through practice and positive reinforcement.

With a 232-seat theatre in downtown South Norwalk, our new community theatre provides another outlet for artistic expression among the many talented adults in the area, producing a combination of classic plays & musicals as well as adult productions of our critically acclaimed original productions.
