About Us

We are a theatre for children, young people and families and all those who like to embrace their inner child. In fact, we are like children too:

curious about the world
we observe and listen, discover what is important and inspiring, and then translate this into creative action

we like to explore: new people, artists and audiences, and new ideas or art forms

our way of working is theatre in every possible form: performance, reading, workshop, game, online event or happening in public space

always ready to play
we bring together a diverse community of artists and are keen to cooperate

Would you like to show your little one something new? Stimulate their emotions and imagination?

We have prepared Theatre for the Very Young performances tailored for children aged 1-3, expertly designed by professionals who know the needs and abilities of children of this age. Such performances last about 30 minutes and are mostly wordless. At the end, artists invite little audience members to come on stage and play in theatre scenery.

Looking for an interesting idea for a family outing?

Choose what interests you most from our extensive repertoire of plays for children of all ages. We have adaptations of classic fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm, but also of contemporary books for children and young people or plays written especially for the theatre by acclaimed playwrights. All performances for younger audiences are designed in such a way that their carers will not be bored either. You are also guaranteed to be surprised by the form of our plays – if you like picturesque, intriguing worlds, then the Miniatura Theatre is definitely for you.

Would you like to do something creative with your family or are you looking for an idea for an unusual creative lesson for your pupils?

Our hard-working Education Team keep coming up with new educational projects or workshops. We have a regular annual series of Miniature Academy workshops for children and young people divided into different age groups, but also many other workshops for children, young people, families, classrooms and teachers. You can also ask for a special workshop for a group of people, we’ll set a date together and will certainly come up with something exciting.

Or perhaps you can’t attend in person, but are looking for interesting suggestions for children online or want to take part in an e-workshop?

We are constantly looking for different forms for theatre online. We do a puppet series (The Papets: Breaking News), a theatrical-psychological series about emotions (E-motions), we write about theatre and literature for children and young people. You can find us on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube as Teatr Miniatura. Most of the material is available free of charge. We also run online art workshops on e-learning platforms (Teams, Zoom, etc.) for groups from all over Poland and sometimes even from abroad.
