Coraline is adapted from a children's book by Newbery Award-winning writer Neil Gaiman.

Although Coraline is a bit scary, we believe is a show that children will enjoy. There is no overt violent, sexual, or obscene content. We recommend it for children 8 years of age or older. Please note: Children under 5 are not permitted in the theater.
