For over 50 years, Children's Theatre Company has been creating extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire young people and the Twin Cities Community.

One of my favorite things about CTC is that they employ a full-time professional acting company. As regular audience members, we start to feel like these actors are friends and we love to see each new incarnation. As community members, we know we can count on CTC to keep great talent in our community by employing them full-time. It's really a winning combination. Get to know your favorites a little more here.
