Now in its 22nd season, The Magik Theatre is San Antonio's premier professional family theatre, producing live stage versions of children's classic and contemporary literature. Since the curtain first came up in 1994, The Magik Theatre has served over 1.5 million people, including children from more than 700 schools and groups in over 40 school districts throughout South and Central Texas. Each year, more than 25,000 people watch books come to life on stage free of charge. In our effort to ensure that every show can be easily integrated into classroom activities, all of The Magik Theatre's productions are accompanied by a comprehensive study guide, packed with standards-based activities, extending every child’s theatre experience as well as broadening his or her understanding and appreciation of a story.

What Sets Us Apart

A promise to our audience and staff
At The Magik Theatre’s inception, Founder Richard Rosen made several promises: 1) The Magik would turn no one away because they couldn't pay; and 2) the theatre would hire people only if we were able to pay them. At first the pay was meager, yet slowly but surely The Magik Theatre began to attract audiences in large numbers, as well as foundations willing to grant money. Along with Dan McLaughlin, one of the theatre's founding members, Richard discovered an organization called ASSITEJ, an international group of theatres committed to creating theatre for youth. After attending one of the first national meetings, they gained knowledge and shared information with other people doing similar work, setting us apart from anyone producing theatre for youth in San Antonio.

Community Outreach

The Magik offers summer camps, an acting and creativity Academy, programs with the Cindy Krier Juvenile Detention center, Shakespeare In The Park, workshops in schools all over the region, a touring company that brings unique and original theatre to schools, and, most important, the willingness to listen to any idea that will better the lives of young people and families.
