Praise For The Tarradiddlers...
"Yesterday we had the Tarradiddle Players come out and do a show for our grades 3-5 kids ... For the first time in 8 years, I have been inundated by comments by staff and students on how entertaining this show and this group were to watch ... this one was far and above any of the others. They did a great job and everyone was entertained."

Resident Touring Company of Children's Theatre of Charlotte
The Tarradiddle Players' founder, the late Constance Welsh, started the troupe to bring the joy and wonder of the stage to audiences who might otherwise never see live theatre. But even she might be surprised to see how much her dream has grown. The Tarradiddle Players have now performed for over one million children, in schools, community centers -- towns big and small -- across the Southeast, bringing smiles (and maybe a tear or two) to the faces of everyone they meet. And the Tarradiddle Players performances on the Children's Theatre MainStage are consistently among the best loved by critics and audiences alike. We now offer a special Preschool Tour for Preschool audiences.
