Excellent shows!

We really loved the performance of "Cinderella" ( Nov 2016). Our entire family was laughing and enjoying the show.

This was a wonderful production full of sight gags, players exchanging conversation with the audience and silly costume and scenery tricks that make children and adults laugh. With all this to laugh about it did not seem possible for kids to think the poor misbehaving puppet was in real danger but getting quite an adventure. The five person cast was... More

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
