Children's Theatre Company, Minneapolis

4.8
Children's Theatre Company (CTC) began as The Moppet Players, a small company which produced creative dramatics, dance, and theatre for children. In 1965, The Moppet Players moved into the Minneapolis Institute of Art and in 1975 was incorporated as Children's Theatre Company. The Theatre's reputation was built on a history of adapting classic children's literature and storybooks, in addition to its extraordinary accomplishments in the areas of scenic and costume design.

For 50 years, CTC has created extraordinary theatre experiences that educate, challenge, and inspire young people and their communities. The first theatre for young people to win the Tony Award® for Outstanding Regional Theater, CTC has welcomed more than 11 million people and created over 200 new plays since 1965. CTC is recognized as North America's flagship theatre for multigenerational audiences as well as a major cultural and artistic resource in Minnesota.

  • A lot more enjoyable than I thought it would have been! We saw Mr Poppers Penguins. I did not know the whole story but it was fun. The production was amazing, seating was good, and there was plenty of staff to help us figure out where we were going. Kids enjoyed it but I was more impressed with how much I did. Very high level of production/professionalism for a play aimed at kids while still making it enjoyable for everyone. Good theater, stage and they also had snacks available as well! Right next to the Minnesota institute of Art as well, so perfect for day/half day trip for everyone!
  • They put on good interactive shows for the children's. It was nice watching them bring the kids into it and hold their interest, but still giving them room to go back and forth between themselves in front and their family/friends in back to take care of themselves without them or the parents being shamed for being an interruption etc. And they have little ways to play/engage in the waiting area too plus the fun socks you get to borrow. Really friendly and helpful staff. Will go again ;)
