City Pages' Description

Great theater fans are made, not born, and many young fans in the Twin Cities find their first delight in dazzling stage productions at the Children's Theater. A mixed cast of amateur children and professional adults adapt favorite books and bring original stories to life to the delight of young audiences. Performances are even graded so that parents know what is appropriate for their kids. In addition to the shows, the theater also engages the community to teach kids the fun and learning that can happen on stage, offering acting classes taught by professional actors. Located adjacent to the Minnesota Institute of Arts, it's the perfect place to see a spider spin a web, what happens if you give a mouse a cookie, or if you meet a very hungry caterpillar.

    Loved Harold and the Purple Crayon last spring, and the Cat and the Hat delivers as well. As a Mom to two toddlers, I love the performances that keep them intrigued. The Cat and the Hat had a delightful story line that stayed true to the story. We loved this performance ~

    Speed up your intermission experience by pre-paying for your snacks and drinks before the show starts!

    Voted Best Large Theater by City Pages in 2010. CTC may aim its work at the younger set, but the theater has never been childish.

    See their holiday show "Cinderella". It's the best ever!
