The Rock and Roll Playhouse is a weekly children's-music-workshop series that allows kids to “move, play and sing while listening to works from the classic-rock canon” (NY Times). Created by entrepreneur and owner of The Capitol Theatre and co-owner of the Brooklyn Bowl, Peter Shapiro, and Amy Striem, a certified Early Childhood and Elementary teacher, The Rock and Roll Playhouse uses music to educate children and explore their creativity. Founded in 2013 in New York City at its flagship venue, Brooklyn Bowl, the Playhouse has now expanded to seventeen cities — Austin, Asheville, Boston, Boulder, Burlington, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, Mill Valley, Nashville, New York, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Portland, San Francisco, South Florida, and Westchester — and eighteen venues.
The idea for The Playhouse came to Shapiro, a parent of two young children, after he discovered first-hand a lack of regular programming in New York City that combined his passion for live music and his family. He collaborated with Striem, then an administrator at his daughter’s nursery school, to help fill this void that they felt many other parents also shared. Using the music of the most iconic musicians in rock history, from The Grateful Dead to Prince to David Bowie to Aretha Franklin to The Beatles and more. The Rock and Roll Playhouse offers its core audience of children under 10 with games, movement, and stories and an opportunity to rock out.
