Backyard Broadway


Backyard Broadway is a performing arts company in Cincinnati, Ohio with the goal of bringing the magic and wonder of live theater to your backyard.  Backyard Broadway was started by Benny Mitchell, now a High School Senior, who wanted to bring live theater to children, through parties and celebrations, allowing them to engage and interact with professional actors in a personal setting.  We come to your house or location in the Greater Cincinnati Area, arrange the set, and perform a live, original show.  As part of the Backyard Broadway experience, our actors will guide your children based on their own experiences, teaching the basics of acting and production.  As part of our Shakespeare package, your child can even be a special part of the show.  Learn more about our options on the Packages page.

Our performing group of young actors and actresses all have professional experience on stage and on screen.  This allows us to give your group an experience you can trust.  Learn about our actors on the About Us page.

Our original shows are based on classic stories you will recognize but customized to our unique stage setting and younger audience.  We currently have two show options:  Snow White and Treasure Island.  Learn more about our current shows on the Shows page.

To check our availability for your next event, please use the Contact Us page.  If you have questions, be sure to look at our FAQs page or our Gallery page for photos from recent shows.

COVID-19 Update

Safety is important to us - for your guests and our actors.  Our performances are COVID friendly as we maintain a safe distance from the audience with our performance space designation.  For more information on our COVID precautions, please see our FAQs.

Thank you for considering Backyard Broadway for your celebration!  We look forward to creating a lasting memory and instilling a shared love of theater with your special person/people!
