If you live in the area and have kids this is a must! We have seen a dozen different productions and have never been disappointed. They have shows for kids of various ages and the production value is amazing. We lived in St. Paul for 4 years and had season tickets. It was worth every penny. I think my favorite... More

This was our second time to see Cinderella put on by this amazing theatre company. Although the take on this classic was a bit different than the first time we saw it, it was equally entertaining for us as well as our 6 year old granddaughter. This is a rather madcap, athletic show that just can't be beat. Every production... More

This was by far the most entertaining event ever. The audience participation was wonderful and the play kept you on your toes the whole time. Lots of laughter ensued during the play. I will come back once again when it comes back to the Children's Theatre.

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
