Making a Theater Program

A theater program can be one page or many pages. Your decision should be based on how much information you have to share and how you will produce the number of copies you'll need for your show.

Information to Include

  • Title of show
  • Location of performance
  • Date and time of performance
  • A list of the acts or scenes in order
  • A summary of the story and where it came from
  • Credits: script writers; puppet makers; puppeteers; theater, stage, and scenery design; sound effects; lighting effects; music

Don't forget to make your program eye-catching. Try using fancy lettering, borders, or drawings to attract people's attention.
