The Children's Theater Company in Minneapolis is so special! They put on wonderful performances, all tailored for children (so no worry about shushing little ones and there's enough going on that it'll keep their attention). What a wonderful way to get young kids interested in theater!

So, this was actually a while back from now, but I attended the play "Antigone" at the Children's Theatre Company and it was amazing. I don't know if they normally have seats during all other shows, but this one was live interaction, and we were literally sitting among the actors on the stage (which was the whole room). It was...

I take my children to MANY cultural attractions. We go to the Children's Theater at least twice per year - and have been doing so since my children were 2 and 4. It is always good. This year we saw Shrek twice and Cinderella. I liked Shrek much more the second time than the first time (maybe I was hungry?)... More

This is by far, the best theatre for children in North America. Every time I stepped in, it was like stepping into a whole new world. Thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your world! Thank you for opening my eyes about theatre and telling me that I can be whatever or whoever I want... More

I have two girls who weren't that familiar with the story, but enjoyed it thoroughly. I like that the seats were in a bench style, so if any cuddling with little ones is necessary, it's super easy to hold them on your lap. My 2 year old and 6 year old loved it, and we hope to go again next... More

I have taken my family to the CTC and they really love it. I am delighted with that as well. I want my children to love the arts.

First visit for granchildren. Carrying on a tradition from our own children. Play was perfect length for 2-4 year olds. The simple set was also not too overwhelming for them. Looking forward to next visit.

It was really important for me to expose my children to the arts as much as I could, especially while they were little. We chose one fun play a year (usually at Christmas) and splurged on excellent tickets. The kids were never disapointed. I'd have to say my personal favorite was The Grinch, but the first play we ever saw... More

As a longtime subscriber to CTC, I can say without reservation that it consistently delivers exciting, innovative (and flawless) productions for delighted audiences of all ages. Patrons have a variety of shows from which to choose, including fantastic musicals and riveting dramas. A three or four series subscription package garners the best price rate. There are reduced prices for children... More

Amazing theatre. Kids and adults are captivated. We have been season ticket holders for two years now and we are NEVER disappointed. Cinderella, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Shrek the Musical, Wizard of Oz, Cat in the Hat and the list goes on. A must see and do.
