The Delaware Children's Theatre has become a fixture in the State of Delaware and the gateway to the City of Wilmington. Today, the DCT is a thriving theatrical institution committed to providing families with a place to enjoy exceptional children's theatre. The theatre also provides acting classes for kids and teens throughout the year.

It is because of one woman's vision and dream that this theatre is a true treasure for the tens of thousands of people in the tri-state area who have experienced the DCT for themselves. Mrs. Swajeski continues to lead the Delaware Children's Theatre into the 21st century and beyond, and as a result, the families and communities who have enjoyed the DCT in the past will be the beneficiaries of its legacy in the future.

We pride ourselves on the exceptionally talented group of dedicated and family-oriented volunteers that make up the heart of The Delaware Children's Theatre. For years, the DCT has worked with hundreds of volunteers of all ages to help make the theatre what it is today. We believe that greatness is not a function of circumstance, but choice. It is because of this philosophy that our many volunteers come back to help show after show, year after year. Without our volunteers, we would just be a building with no name.

Shows in our 2010-2011 theatrical season are listed on our website. For tickets to any DCT production, call (302) 655-1014 or email the Box Office today!


In 1973, The Delaware Children's Theatre first started from the vision of Marie Swajeski, its founder and artistic director. The organization has grown over the years to become the premiere institution for family entertainment in the Delaware Valley.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
