CMC Center Stage

World-class performances on the small stage!

The Children's Museum of Cleveland is bringing world-class performances to the small stage with our CMC Center Stage performance series! 

A live performance can stimulate imagination, promote emotional development, and teach children about different cultures. Join us for a series of interactive and engaging performances, designed for our youngest learners. 

Professional arts groups will take the stage at CMC for age-appropriate performances of music, theater, and dance. All events are FREE with CMC Membership and general admission.
