Each Dayton Live Family Series show will challenge your children — or the children in your life — to explore their own creativity and imagination. Most performances are an hour in length and occur at the Victoria Theatre. Introduce the young ones in your life to the power of live performances – and get some quality family time at the same time! The series includes five or more shows, some with more than one performance. You can choose the shows that best suit you and your children to make your own custom Season Ticket package of four or more shows.
