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.

Children's theatre does a wonderful job. I have taken my children here when they were young and, most recently, my grandchildren and always a wonderful experience for children and adults alike.

An amazing theater with outstanding youth and adult actors. They produce the classics to new avantgaarde works that speak to social issues. The level of professionalism in not only the actors, but the overall production; sets, choreography, costumes, music arrangements and lighting. All of this for tickets priced to accommodate the entire family. The theater adjoins the Minneapolis institute of... More

I went with my girlfriend and enjoyed the show. Good set design, good actors, the audience was entertained the whole time. It is a children's theater, but the show was entertaining for adults as well. High production value.
