Family-Friendly Theater at the DAM

Art Emergency

Family Theater during Break Weeks—Great for All Ages.

Join us for Art Emergency, an original family-friendly play series that is performed during winter and spring breaks at the DAM.

These plays are fast paced, funny, and give amazing insight into some of the most beloved artworks at the DAM. Meet in Sharp Auditorium (lower level). And after the show, all visitors receive cards to go find the featured artworks in the galleries!

Included in general admission - free for kids, and free for members. Not yet a member? Join today! Plays begin at 11 am.
