We are thrilled to start re-opening our Playhouse! Please do your part and learn about the many changes that we are making for the safety of all.
Staying Safe Together
GiGi’s Playhouse has implemented additional safety standards in an effort to reduce the health risks for our staff, volunteers, and Playhouse visitors. See the links below for more details.
Things To Know Before You Visit GiGi’s Playhouse
