Your home for family time, all the time.

Theatre by its very nature is about bringing people together. We do this through stories that build community, spark curiosity, and foster conversations.

See What We Mean

From Children's Classics to Bold New Work

We are expanding the canon of Theatre for Young Audiences

Classics Re-Imagined

Journey to Oz was a unique re-telling of L. Frank Baum’s classic story that literally brought the audience into the show. Audience members were invited on stage to play out key moments in the story, in a unique improvisational style, guided by the actors on stage. This fun, experiential piece written and directed by Christopher Parks, who also helped develop GRIMMZ Fairy Tales, part of our 2020-21 virtual season.

The Kindness Project

When is the last time you experienced or shared kindness? Take the step towards action through The Kindness Project, an initiative that brings original plays centered around kindness to young audiences. These stories will move you to take a seat and a stance to be kind.

Her legacy lives on through a Directing Assistantship created for those with limited opportunities to direct a theatrical production. The recipient will serve as an assistant director on three unique CTC productions, each differing from one another in size, scope, style, theme, and tone.

Our Commitment

We are also committed to listening, learning and working together to address racial injustice in our community. There is vital work to be done, and we’ve developed actionable next steps around our people, practices and programs. We welcome your thoughts and support through this process. We know change often isn’t easy and won’t come quickly but is necessary. We must move forward together. As storytellers in the community, we have a unique platform to foster conversation among our children, families and neighbors. We hope you will join us as we create this story of change.
