For over 50 years, Children’s Theatre Company (CTC) has been creating extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge and inspire young people and the Twin Cities Community. Going to a play or musical there is always a treat for the family, especially when combined with a short trip to Mia. CTC also offers acting classes, workshops and camps for kids throughout the year through their Theatre Arts Training (TAT) program.

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.
