“They do a nice job”
Reviewed February 19, 2013

For shows catered to kids they do a nice job. Thoroughly enjoyed a different take on Pinocchio. It's connected to the Mpls. Institute of Arts so you can pop in there before or after and see some favorite kid friendly paintings and then pop out again (it's free!). They charge for parking now which is a drag for the theatre but definitely understandable for the MIA

“High Quality Family Theater”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

We have been to several performances over the years and each time we're amazed at the professionalism and care given to the show and the patrons as well. From clean and neat amenities to bright and lively set design and acting, everything is a step above the ordinary. A recent trip to NY and a Broadway show highlighted the difference between tired and inspired.

“Well worth the money and time!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The children's theatre entertains the children but also the adults. We have seen a few of the shows and have enjoyed all of them. Seating ig good and there really is no bad seat. We sat in the 8th row.

“Always a joy”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I don't care if I'm an old lady, I love every single production I've ever seen here. Perfect if you want to see live theatre but don't have the attention span to sit through a serious production. Always colorful, professional and full of joy. Every seat in the house is a good seat, too!
