By | January 8, 2023

We’re excited to announce the remaining titles for the 2022/2023 Children’s Season!

Jessica M. Bogese Theatre

“It was an extremely successful holiday season, as we welcomed 2,662 patrons to our inaugural holiday musical in our new space, the Jessica M. Bogese Theatre at 4204 Hermitage Rd. ‘Twas the Night before Christmas was a very popular show for all generations. One performance had over 400 people. Many patrons shared warm memories of seeing shows on this stage over the years,” said Todd D. Norris, Artistic Director of Education. “We appreciate the community’s support of our purchase of the former Scottish Rite Temple, and we felt very welcomed to the Bellevue neighborhood.”
