We brought our 4th grade daughters to Diary of a Wimpy Kid and they had a really good time. The show is very professional and the acoustics in their theater are excellent. I would say a good show for kids up to 12 years old.

About a year ago, my friends and I went to go see How the Grinch Stole Christmas. I was not expecting how well organized this company was and how amazingly affordable it was! Overall, I was very satisfied.

We've been to 3-4 shows a year at the Children's Theater Company for the past decade. Without exception, every show we've seen on the main stage has been wonderful. Some of the smaller stage shows haven't been quite as amazing, but still very enjoyable and a fun day. We just saw "Diary of a Wimpy Kid - The Musical" this... More

I have been going to shows here since 1978. Ranging from The Match Girls Gift to Cinderella to scripts they had written for Children's Theatre Company. Most unique is the relationship with the Seuss Estate as they are the first producers of Grinch, Cubbins and Cat in the Hat (and others I am sure.) The theatre also boosts a Tony... More

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

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
