The Tobin Center for the Performing Arts is the new home for the Children’s Fine Arts Series!  We are thrilled to be a resident company of the Tobin Center.  We join nine other organizations who have a home at the Tobin. Learn more about the Tobin Center and its companies and programs.

We extend our most heartfelt gratitude to Las Casas Foundation and Arts Center Enterprises for the many years of generosity and care given to the Children’s Fine Arts Series. And a special thanks to Trinity University’s Laurie Auditorium which was our first home in 1982 and continued to be a favorite venue every Season. We were so fortunate to be a part of the Charline McCombs Empire Theatre and Laurie Auditorium for 31 years. They helped make us who we are today.
