Announcing Play Days with Dragon’s Eye Theatre

At Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse

Come out to exercise your imagination and help us invent our newest play!

Dragon’s Eye artists will lead a series of 30 minute play sessions that get participants up on their feet creating characters and stories inspired by Smith’s unique architecture and toys. Ideas generated during Play Days will be the building blocks for a brand new theatrical adventure that Dragon’s Eye will premiere at Smith Playground & Playhouse in the 2014 Fringe Festival (September 5-21)

Recommended for children ages 4 to 9 and the adults who love to bring them to Smith

This event is free, suggested donation of $5 per family much appreciated

Seek and Hide Returns to Smith Playhouse!


Dragon’s Eye Theatre continues our partnership with Smith Memorial Playground and Playhouse with performances from June 5-21.



Thank you to the Leeway Foundation for awarding us an Art and Change Grant to help cover performance costs for schools that don’t have funds for field trips. We’re so excited to share Seek and Hide with students from across Philadelphia!

Over the summer, we’ll be creating a brand-new piece that will take you on more unexpected journeys through the Smith Playhouse, and this time through the Playground too! You can expect more of Dragon’s Eye Theatre’s signature blend of wacky characters, dynamic movement, and plenty of opportunities for everyone to get up and use their imaginations. Mark your calendars for the premiere of this new creation from September 7-22 as part of the 2013 Philly Fringe Festival.
