We attended Wizard of Oz this year and The Grinch last year and have been very impressed by the quality and professionalism of the productions. Both were simply over-the-top as far as children's theaters are concerned and extremely engaging, capturing the children's attention for the entire show. My daughters, 8 & 10 yrs old, were on the edge of their... More

I can't say anything that's not been said already. Great for, kids of all ages and adults. The Wizard of Oz was fantastic, even our teenager loved it. Gr eat facility and if you sit close to the front younger kids can look into the musicians pit, great time killer!

Like each and every performance we have attended at the Children's Theater, the Wizard of Oz was spectacular and memorable. Surprisingly true to the classic Judy Garland movie, our family of ten alternately wept and laughed throughout the 2+ hours. Our seven year old granddaughter had not seen the movie and for her, the experience was magical. If the opportunity... More

We have attended 2-3 plays here per year and the quality of the performances is consistently outstanding. Many of the same cast members... So they get to know the venue and make it a very special experience. Just saw the Wizard of Oz - was out of this world! Views are great from all seats, but acoustics could use some... More

We have been attending the CTC for many years, bringing our children and grandchildren. We just came back from seeing the Wizard of Oz (Nov. 2015) and the production was very true to the 1939 movie version with Judy Garland, albeit much shorter than the movie length. We have also seen Cinderella, Shrek, and The Mouse and the Cookie here... More

My grandma and I saw a play here and it was absolutely fantastic. The actors, special effects, and music were top notch. You don't need to be a kid to enjoy a play here! I'd definitely go back to see another show.

This 50 year old company performs several plays during the course of the year. It is located inside the Minneapolis Institute of Art. We try to go whenever we visit our grandchildren in the city. It is great for adults as well, although most were there with kids.

This was our first time at the Children's Theatre. I had purchased a groupon for my family to attend a performance. The theater isn't very large but seemed the perfect size. You feel close to the actors, it is easy to see the stage. We were on the main level. There is a small concession stand that is open during... More

The first time I brought my daughter here she was 5 and we had front row seats. The play was so amazing and realistic that she sat on my lap once or twice when she thought it might get scary. Since then we come to see a play at least once a year if not more. Every play has been... More
