About Carousel Theatre

The Carousel Theatre

In 1932, The Junior League of High Point began putting on plays for children at area schools. In 1969, the Junior League conducted a study into bringing professional children’s theatre to High Point and Carousel Theatre was formed under the Junior League of High Point in 1970.

In 1972, Carousel Theatre was accepted as a funded affiliate of the High Point Area Arts Council. Other affiliates include High Point Ballet, High Point Community Concerts, High Point Community Theatre, and Piedmont Artists.

Over the years, Carousel Theatre has brought the magic of live theatre to countless children in the greater High Point area.
