Children’s Theatre Workshop Kicks Off Touring Program at Toledo Botanical Gardens

Posted May 22nd, 2017 by Aimee Reid  Category: Arts & Entertainment, Events


The Children’s Theatre Workshop has a new program for Toledo theatre audiences: a theatre for young audiences tour. Professional adult actors will perform The Imaginators, a one-hour play by Dwayne Hartford, for child audiences all over Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.

The Imaginators is about three children creating a fantastic adventure and defeating a terrible monster using whatever they find in their garage; the play celebrates imagination, cooperation, and playtime. The Imaginators features local actors Haven Bradam as the uptight Anne, Griffin Coldiron as the good-natured Tim, Jalesa Earby as the imaginative Nina, and Patrick Mahood as the mysterious William. Mr. Mahood will also feature as the puppeteer for the Mooklecratz, the terrifying monster that Anne, Tim, and Nina must overcome.

CTW’s tour of The Imaginators premiers at the Toledo Botanical Gardens on June 12, July 10, and August 14, 2017 at 6:00 pm at the Garden. Tickets are $5 for children 18 years and younger, and $7 for adults. Proceeds from the tickets benefit Children’s Theatre Workshop and the Toledo Botanical Gardens.

The Imaginators is available for booking throughout the summer months, and will start performing for schools on Fridays starting September 8, 2017-May 25, 2018. For information on booking The Imaginators, visit or email

Children’s Theatre Workshop was able to start the touring program thanks to a generous $10,000 grant from the Toledo Rotary Foundation to purchase the touring van.
