Kick-off the school year with a fall field trip to Children’s Theatre Company! CTC offers weekday matinee performances specifically designed for classroom field trips. We know it is a big responsibility to plan a field trip, so we try to keep it as simple as possible. CTC offers school groups the flexibility to reserve now and pay later! Thanks to our grants and generous donors, field trip tickets are available at a significantly lower price than our public performances with tickets starting at $10. Further discounts are available for schools with 20% or higher free and reduced lunch rate. Full information about CTC’s field trip program can be found at www.childrenstheatre.org/student.

A whole new kind of circus is coming to town! The rhythm of Ethiopia comes alive as this internationally acclaimed, dream-filled adventure makes its daring Minnesota debut. Jaws will drop as one amazing feat after another defies gravity and awakens possibility; oh, to be part of the spectacle! It’s an incredible range of high-flying hilarity, hula hooping, death-defying tricks, and ridiculously joy-filled juggling with the music and movement of East Africa.

This is not your usual “Once Upon a Time.” Classic? no. Wild? yes! To start with, it’s a two-person play. Do the math. Snow White and the Seven Dwarves? Two fabulous, whip-smart, super-fast actors play Snow White, the huntsman, the prince, and all seven dwarves! And it’s funny. Really, really funny. So expect the unexpected in this fabulous fairy tale with a (spoiler alert) you-won’t-see-it-coming twist.
