In 1986 Derby Dinner began a program that combined theatre and education. The children’s theatre shows are performed weekdays for school groups and on Saturday for the public. All school shows have accompanying lesson plans to help teachers incorporate the play into the curriculum. The Saturday performances include breakfast or lunch, and season tickets that include four children’s theatre shows are available.
