- When is payment due?

Payment and final numbers are due 6 weeks prior to your scheduled performance date, in most cases.

- What is your cancellation policy?

Once payment is made on an order, it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted.

- Do I need to make a deposit?

For our 2014-2015 Season, no deposit payment is required. Seats will be held for no charge until your ticket order's due date (either 6 weeks or 8 weeks before the performance). If the initial ticket order is made within the 6 or 8 week deadline, payment in full will be due at the time of reservation.

- Do you give out any comps with group orders?

We do not provide comps with group orders.

- What if our numbers drop from our initial reservation?

Up until you make payment, you have the ability to adjust your numbers, change dates, or even cancel the order with no penalty. Once payment is made, it will be considered a final sale; no refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted.

- What if our numbers grow from our initial reservation?

As long as there are tickets available we'll happily add tickets to your order. Please note that additional tickets will be subject to any price increases made since the initial order.

- Can I return any tickets I failed to sell for a refund?

No, once you provide payment it is a final sale. No refunds, exchanges, or cancellations will be permitted.

- What if there is a snowstorm and we can't make the trip?

During inclement weather, please allow extra travel time, as the Theatre does not cancel or delay performances due to weather.

- I have a large group. Do you have any suggestions for keeping track of our seating assignments?

Yes! Your tickets will be mailed with a group tracking form on which you can fill in the full name and seat location for each group member. This will be extremely useful for reprinting tickets should any tickets be lost or forgotten. This form also allows us to quickly and quietly pull someone out of the theatre in case of an emergency. The Group Tracking Form can be downloaded and printed on the right-hand side of the Group Sales page within the "Tickets" tab above.

- Is there an age minimum to attend a performance?

Everyone of any age is welcome at CTC. Please note: we do not recommend attendance by any child under the age of 3 in the United HealthGroup Stage unless specifically recommended for preschool age.

- Is there a dress code for CTC?

No, we do not have a dress code. Audience members are free to arrive in jeans or tuxedos.

- Does everyone in my group need a ticket?

CTC’s policy is that everyone coming into the Theatre must possess a ticket, regardless of age or position.

- Does my infant even need a ticket?

Yes. For productions on the UnitedHealth Group Stage, Lap Passes are available for children ages 3 and under. For productions on the Cargill Stage, Lap Passes are available for children 18 months and younger. Lap passes can only be purchased at the Ticket Office window on the day of the show. Contact the Ticket Office for pricing at 612.874.0400.

- When will the length of the show be announced?

As all CTC productions are live performances, running times may vary. Approximate run times may be published on childrenstheatre.org based on prior performances or staged readings of productions, but these are subject to change during Preview Week. No performances at CTC are longer than 2 hours including any intermissions that may occur. Contact Kaley at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 612.872.5319 for the run times of productions currently running.

- Is there an intermission?

Many shows will have a 15 minute intermission, but there are some that do not have one at all.

- Can my group sit together?

Public Group tickets are assigned at the time of booking. CTC will do its best to ensure groups are seated together.

- How do I get to CTC?

CTC is located at 2400 3rd Ave South, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55404, just south of Downtown Minneapolis in the Whittier neighborhood. Detailed directions and parking information can be found here.

- Where is your lobby located?
