That title - as over-the-top as it may seem - is not an overstatement. Plays are always noted for different age groups, but even some of the plays for the youngest set are so cute and fun that older kids enjoy them as well. Always a lot of kids in attendance, so no reason to worry. A warm and inviting... More

I love coming to plays at the Children's Theater. They are always expertly done. Wonderful costumes, sets and plays. There is always an intermission when you can buy snacks and drinks. I usually pre-pay for these before the show so that at intermission I can just walk by and grab my order because you do have to finish them before... More

The 50th Anniversary Celebration done at Target Field was wonderful! The video recording of the show A Year with Frog & Toad (done live on stage in 2003) was shown on the Jumbotron and was fantastic! We brought our children to shows done at the CTC from the time they were toddlers. After a couple of years of buying single... More

Simply wonderful! The staff was so helpful and welcoming...and best of all organized. The cast of Peter Pan did amazing what a wonderfully talented group of people. They did a great job with the comedy portions of the play. Wow! We will be at the next play!!

We have bought season tickets now several years now. The cast is always top notch. Staging and production quality also great. I can only think of a play or two that fell short in all the years. Now my only daughter is 9 so I may have to move to taking my niece so I have an 'excuse' to attend!

I've been going to plays at CTC for almost 40 years and have seen many shows that have been worthwhile. Among my favorites over the years have been The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins (seen it 5 times!), A Year With Frog and Toad, If You Give A Mouse a Cookie (Dean Holt was extraordinary as the Mouse), Mr. Popper's...

Children's Theatre features plays for children, most recently a stellar performance of Peter Pan. Tickets aren't a bargain ranging from $85 to $45 for most performances but you can get a $5 lap ticket for children under 3. Balcony seats are NOT handicap accessible though which wasn't very clear from the website and caused a minor problem for us.

We went on a school field trip. The production was fantastic. The building is a little hard to find--it is in a residential area of south Minneapolis. The seats are very comfortable and the show keeps the kids attention. Loved it!!

Actors flying around and above the state, magnificent voices, and a fantastically delivered production in every way!
